The New Gold Standard in Quality Payments: Alternative Payment Models (APMs)
As healthcare shifts from a fee-for-service to a value-based system, Medicare is making sweeping changes to how it reimburses physicians. Indeed, doctors who achieve the highest levels of “value” will earn substantial increases in their Medicare Part B payments. Conversely, those who do little or nothing to address the new requirements will incur significant reductions. Commercial payers are adopting similar models, further expanding the potential impact of these changes – positive or negative – on a practice.
