CMS has launched a new section on the Quality Payment Program website at https://qpp.cms.gov/about/small-underserved-rural-practices dedicated to doctors and other clinicians working in small or rural practices as well as those treating patients in underserved areas. This page serves as a single point of reference to help you prepare for, and actively participate in, the Quality Payment Program, especially, for those of you participating under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track. You can quickly locate contact information for the organizations providing assistance to practices through the Small, Underserved, and Rural Support initiative using a simple interactive map. These local, experienced, community-based organizations provide hands-on training to help thousands of small practices, especially those that practice in historically under-resourced areas including rural areas, health professional shortage areas, and medically underserved areas. The training and education resources are available nationwide and will be provided at no cost to eligible clinicians and practices. You can also review the QPP flexibilities to help reduce the participation and reporting burden on small practices for 2017.
