August 11, 2022
Policy Snapshot

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published 2022 Alternative Payment Model (APM) Incentive Payment details on the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website. To access this information, clinicians and surrogates can now log in to the QPP website using their HARP credentials

Eligible clinicians who were Qualifying APM Participants (QPs) based on their 2020 performance should have begun receiving their 2022 5% APM Incentive Payments earlier this summer. Review the updated 2022 Learning Resources for QP Status and APM Incentive Payment for more details. More information is also available in the Federal Register.

APM Incentive Payment Details Available on QPP Website 

CMS has taken time to ensure correct payments and information are available during the 2022 payment year. CMS’ process includes verifying eligible clinicians’ Advanced APM participation and the calculation of the APM Incentive Payment. 

You can now log in to the QPP website to see the amount and the organization paid for both the 10-digit National Provider Identifier (NPI) and the organization. 

What Do I Need to Do in Order to Receive the APM Incentive Payment? 

You will not need to do anything to receive your payment, unless CMS is unable to verify your Medicare billing information. 

If you have not begun toreceive your payment, you should check for your name in the 2022 QP Notice for APM Incentive Payment Zip File on the QPP Resource Library, which indicates that you will need to verify your Medicare billing information. If you do not verify your Medicare billing information by November 1, 2022, then CMS will not be able to issue your APM Incentive Payment. For instructions on how to verify your Medicare billing information, review the Zip File and Federal Register notice.
