Leveraging BPCI Advanced in Medicare Advantage to Help Physicians with QPP-AAPM Requirements
This is the second of our Executive Webinar Series: Transforming Healthcare with Value-Based Payment & Benefit Strategies.
Remedy Partners discusses the Medicare Quality Payment Program (QPP) Advanced Alternative Payment Model (AAPM) track. Qualifying for the AAPM track guarantees physicians a 5% bonus on their Medicare Part B fee-for-service revenue.
Medicare Advantage plans that apply the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Advanced model can help physicians reach the revenue threshold required to qualify for the AAPM track.
This webinar will discuss:
- What Medicare Advantage, and other commercial payers, must do to have their Alternative Payment Models (APMs) qualify as AAPMs
- A step-by-step guide for Medicare Advantage plans' APMs to qualify as AAPMs
- The All-Payer AAPM combination option to help physicians qualify for the QPP-AAPM track
