ACR publishes comment letter to CMS on recent QPP proposed rule

The American College of Radiology (ACR) has submitted a comment letter to CMS on June’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) proposed rule, saying its members “appreciates CMS’s overall efforts to ease the burden on physicians, especially in the small and rural setting, as we attempt to transition into these new payment systems.”

The letter touches on dozens of topics, including proposed changes to small practice eligibility determination, low-volume threshold exclusions, the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System and more.

“The ACR stands ready to assist CMS in helping the radiology community continue the transition to the Quality Payment Program,” the letter concludes.

The full comment letter, which is more than 40 pages long, can be read here.
