195.038 Improving the Quality Payment Program and Preserving Patient Access: The Texas Medical Association supports the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (1) increasing the low-volume threshold for the 2020 Quality Payment Program and future years of the program for all physicians but continue to offer them the opportunity to opt in or voluntarily report, and (2) preserving patient access by exempting small practices (1-15 clinicians) from required participation in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System but continue to offer them the opportunity to opt in or voluntarily report (Pres. Rep. 2-A-19).
