Physician Value Based Payment Modifier: Experience from Private Sector Physician Pay-for-Performance Programs
Topic
Value-Based Payment Modifier – Physician Feedback Program

Section 3007 of the Affordable Care Act requires CMS to apply a Value Modifier, which compares the quality of care furnished to the cost of that care, to physician payment rates under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule starting with specific physicians and physician groups in 2015 and expanding to all physicians by 2017.

This National Provider Call is in support of the efforts of CMS to implement the Medicare Physician Feedback and Physician Value-Based Payment Modifier (VBPM) Programs. This call is one of a series of calls CMS will hold to engage the public in dialogue about physician level value-based purchasing and obtain stakeholder input on how best to implement the physician value modifier.

This National Provider Call will include presentations from a panel of three private sector experts who have had experiences in implementing physician-level pay-for-performance programs.

When: Wednesday, March 14, 2012
Time: 1:30 -3:00PM Eastern Time
