The proposed rule carries out the 2015 law that seeks to overhaul the payment of doctors and focuses on tying reimbursement to quality measures. The proposed rule provides for additional flexibilities as providers continue to transition into the Quality Payment Program, including:


  • Implementation of virtual groups for small practices
  • The option to use electronic health record (EHR) technology certified to the 2014 Edition for the 2018 performance period
