Policy Snapshot

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its Quality Payment Program Participation Status Tool based on the first snapshot of data from Alternative Payment Model (APM) entities. The tool includes 2019 Qualifying APM Participant (QP) and participation status in an APM that qualifies for the APM scoring standard.

To learn more about how CMS determines QP and APM participation status for each snapshot, please view the QP Methodology Fact Sheet.

  • Eligible for the 5% APM incentive bonus
  • Exempt from participating in MIPS
