Integrating the Osteopathic Approach in Medicine


A Little More Demonstration, A Little More Action:


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced a new demonstration that provides physicians who participate in Medicare Advantage an opportunity to opt out of the Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The new Medicare Advantage Qualifying Payment Arrangement Incentive (MAQI) demonstration seeks to test whether exempting MIPS-eligible clinicians who participate in certain payment arrangements with Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs) from the MIPS reporting requirements and payment adjustment will:


·         Increase participation in payment arrangements with MAOs that meet criteria for Qualifying Payment Arrangements;

·         Incentivize providers to transform their care delivery; and

·         Change utilization patterns among participants in the Demonstration.


Physicians who are interested in participating can apply until September 6, 2018 on the demonstration’s webpage at:
