Within MACRA, the Quality Payment Program (QPP) streamlines several pay-for-performance programs in the new Merit-based Incentive Payments System (MIPS) and provides incentive payments for participation in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) like the Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO. MIPS is the newly structured program that pulls activities and requirements from 3 known pay-for-performance programs and reassembles them into 1 cohesive program made up of 4 categories, which are: Quality, Advancing Care Information (ACI), new Improvement Activities (IA), and Cost.
