Have you explored the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website lately? Did you have trouble finding what you were looking for? Did you click on all the links but leave the website with more questions than answers? 

If the answer is yes, tell the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) all about it and get credit for the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) improvement activities category

CMS is looking for physicians to provide feedback on the QPP website, including products, services, educational materials, and website content. 

CMS says the feedback sessions take 30 to 60 minutes and can be done over the phone, via video conference, or through email. 

By providing feedback, you may claim credit for the “Participation in User Testing of the Quality Payment Program Website” MIPS improvement activity.

This is a medium-weighted activity that is worth 10 points. However, because of special scoring policies, points for this category double for individual clinicians, groups, or virtual groups who hold a “special status”: small practice (15 or fewer MIPS-eligible clinicians), nonpatient facing, rural, and/or health professional shortage area. To find out if you have one of these designations, check your QPP participation status

If you’re interested, email CMSQPPFeedback[at]Ketchum[dot]com to participate in feedback sessions and get MIPS credit.   

For more information about the MIPS improvement activities category, refer to this CMS fact sheet
