While for the 2017 and 2018 participation years, physicians could only receive credit for APM participation if they were participating in a “Medicare Advanced APM,” (i.e., an APM administered by CMS/CMMI under Medicare Part B), beginning in 2019, physicians who are participating in APM arrangements with other payers (e.g., Medicare Advantage plans), “Other Payer Advanced APMs,” can have that participation count towards the requirements for the QPP Advanced APM pathway. There are four ways for physicians or other eligible clinicians to meet the QP and PQ thresholds.
