On September 28, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published a Request for Information (RFI) seeking stakeholder comments related to innovative physician payment models required by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). The RFI is scheduled to be published in the October 1, 2015 Federal Register with comments due 30 days after publication.

The RFI requests comments regarding the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and a number of other programs authorized by MACRA. Under MACRA, the existing CMS Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value-Based Payment Modifier (VPM) and Electronic Health Records incentive (EHR) programs are sunset. CMS anticipates incorporating aspects of these programs into the new MIPS.
