What is an Advanced APM?
Advanced Alternate Payment Models (APMs) are a track of the Quality Payment Program that offer a 5 percent incentive to participants in return for meeting certain criteria:
- Require participants to use certified EHR technology
- Provide payment for covered professional services based on quality measures
- Be a Medical Home Model or require participants to bear an 8 percent financial risk.
Only Qualifying APM Participants can earn a 5 percent payment incentive.
