New CMS Webpage for Clinicians in Small, Rural, or Underserved Areas

July 7, 2017

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched a new Quality Payment Program (QPP) webpage dedicated to doctors and other clinicians working in small or rural practices as well as those treating patients in underserved areas. This page provides:

  • Single point of reference to help you prepare for, and actively participate in QPP, especially for those of you participating under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System track.
  • Contact information for organizations providing assistance to practices through a simple interactive map. These local, experienced, community-based organizations provide hands-on training.
  • Free training and education resources.
  • Flexibilities to help reduce the participation and reporting burden for 2017.

CMS plans to add more features and information and will continue to keep the lines of communication open. We value your feedback in helping us improve your experience in the QPP.
