Reporting And Data

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015, created the Quality Payment Program (QPP). The QPP streamlined multiple quality programs under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) including existing payment programs that ended 12/31/18: (1) Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS); (2) Value-based Payment Modifier (VBM); and (3) Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. MIPS is intended to rewards clinicians for value over volume.

Although many of these requirements apply to individual medical professionals and other types of hospitals and health care facilities, the information is presented solely to support Critical Access Hospitals. The reporting requirements and legal mandates on this site are not an exhaustive list and Nevada Rural Hospital Partners, Inc. bears no responsibility or liability for any hospitals' or providers' failure to comply with Federal or State laws or regulations.
