CMS Extends Physician Payment Reform Comment Deadline

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has given hospitals and other stakeholders an additional two weeks to comment on Medicare payment reform for physicians.

Stakeholders now have until Nov. 17 to respond to an Oct. 1 request for information from CMS on the implementation of provisions related to the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and incentives for participation in alternative payment models. These provisions, set to start in 2019, were enacted by legislation that repealed the Medicare sustainable growth rate formula.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at or 202.585.0127.
