Deadline to Update Billing Info for Your APM Incentive Payment
November 13, 2020
Reminder: Update Your Billing Info by November 13 for Your APM Incentive Payment
The CMS QPP (Quality Payment Program) website includes 2020 Alternative Payment Model (APM) Incentive Payment details. To access information on the incentive amount and organization paid, clinicians and surrogates can log in to the QPP website using their HARP credentials. In order to receive payments, certain clinicians will need to verify their Medicare billing information by November 13, 2020.
Many eligible clinicians who were Qualifying APM Participants (QPs) based on their 2018 performance began receiving their 2020 5% APM Incentive Payments last month. If you have already received your payment, you do not need to do anything.
CMS also posted a new 2020 APM Incentive Payment Fact Sheet to explain:
- Who is eligible to receive an APM incentive payment in 2020
- How CMS determines your 2020 APM Incentive Payment
- Frequently asked questions and answers
NOTE: If you do not verify your Medicare billing information by November 13, 2020, CMS will not be able to issue your APM Incentive Payment.
For more information, review the QP Public Notice File for Payment Year 2020 Excel Spreadsheet and supporting forms in the 2020 QP Notice for APM Incentive Payment zip file. The spreadsheet will indicate which form you need to submit—the IP Form and/or 588 Form—in order to verify your Medicare billing information.
Contact the Quality Payment Program at [email protected] or 1-866-288-8292. To receive assistance more quickly, consider calling during non-peak hours—before 10 a.m. and after 2 p.m. ET.
