Description: LAMMICO Practice Solutions will host a complimentary webinar about the Quality Payment Program for LAMMICO insureds, physicians and their practice staff. After a brief presentation, questions from participants will be addressed.

January 1, 2019 was the beginning of the third year of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) and the penalty for nonparticipation and the minimum requirements to avoid that penalty have increased. If your practice hasn't done anything yet, you can still avoid a seven percent Medicare penalty! If you are currently collecting data, you can still review and evaluate your QPP strategy. Many of the activities and measures included in the QPP were created to increase patient engagement, improve communication and enhance overall quality in a practice to help mitigate malpractice risk.

At the end of this presentation, you should be able to:

  • Determine your eligibility status and opt-in options
  • Select measures and activities 
  • Effectively use the tools and resources provided by CMS
  • Develop a strategy for achieving your desired composite score 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
