MIPS Alternative Payment Model (APM)

Practices that participate in the ACO's MSSP contract are automatically enrolled in a special MIPS payment model created for ACO participants called the MIPS APM. Because the ACO reports some categories of data on behalf of its participants, this model places a reduced reporting burden on practices, compared to those enrolled in the standard MIPS model. 

  • MIPS Promoting Interoperability (PI) Category Details:
  • Enterprise Identity Management System (EIDM) Accounts: It is important to obtain an EIDM account to access the CMS Quality Payment Program portal in order to:
