24 February 2012
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is holding a national provider call, Physician value-based payment modifier program: Experience from private sector physician pay-for-performance programs
, on Feb. 29 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Physicians should participate and learn more about CMS’s efforts to implement the Medicare physician feedback and physician value-based payment modifier programs. CMS will continue to hold these calls to engage the public in dialogue about physician level value-based purchasing and obtain stakeholder input on how best to implement the physician value modifier.
This call will address Section 3007 of the Affordable Care Act, which requires CMS to apply a value modifier to physician payment rates under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule starting with specific physicians and physician groups in 2015 and expanding to all physicians by 2017. There will be presentations from a panel of three private sector experts who have had experiences in implementing physician-level pay-for-performance programs.
for additional information on the call and to register by noon on Feb. 29.
