Submission Methods for the Quality Payment Program

Under the Quality Payment Program, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) allows practices or eligible professionals to submit their data through a variety of methods. Yet only one method may be used for each performance category: Quality, Improvement Activities and Advancing Care Information (CMS has renamed Meaningful Use to Promoting Interoperability). Cost performance data is not submitted but rather directly available to CMS through administrative claims data for the Total Per Capita Cost, Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary and episode-based measures.
