CMS Report on QPP Shows Increasing Involvement

On January 6, 2020, CMS released the final data regarding participation in the 2018 Quality Payment Program. The following are some key points from their press release (emphasis added):

These facts seem to indicate that provider involvement in QPP, which includes both MIPS and APMs, is nearly complete. Since almost 98% of providers were above their performance thresholds, it would be also be safe to presume that the learning curve is over since most are reporting correctly and receiving good scores.

I was surprised by the fact that APM participation nearly doubled fro 2017 to 2018. Early CMS estimates for this program indicated that they felt like these numbers would increase and I believe that the results far exceed those early estimates.
