Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) are one of two new payment paths to determine Medicare Part B payment adjustments. This path is for providers who go the furthest in delivering high-quality, coordinated, and efficient care. You must bill more than $30,000 in Medicare and have more than 100 Medicare patients.

 

Clinicians who meet the criteria for APM incentive payments do not receive a payment adjustment under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and instead receive a 5% Medicare Part B incentive payment.

 

The 2017 list of models that qualify as Advanced APMs and may benefit from the use of CHADIS include:

Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+)
