Clinical Guidelines

Medicare Annual Wellness Visits

Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP)

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.
