CMS rolls out Advanced APM search tool for physicians

CMS completed its first analysis to determine which physicians qualify under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act's Advanced Alternative Payment Model and published the results in a searchable database.

Physicians can find out if they are a qualifying APM participant using their national provider identifier. About 75,000 NPIs were included in the first analysis. The analysis was based on claims from Jan. 1 to March 31. CMS plans to update the database with claims for services completed from Jan. 1 to June 30 soon.

Clinicians participating in the Comprehensive Joint Replacement Model and the Shared Savings ACO Track 1 were not included in the analysis.
