TMF's QPP MIPS Assistance Ends February 15, 2022

Quality Payment Program

Payment Program (QPP) and practices can now receive assistance from the CMS QPP Helpdesk:, email or phone 1-866-288-8292.

For five years, TMF Health Quality Institute helped clinicians successfully participate in QPP, the Medicare payment program that enhanced the fee-for-service reimbursement with higher payments for improved quality. TMF provided individualized support for all aspects of the QPP and the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), one of the two QPP payment tracks, until the contract ended Feb. 15, 2022. CMS contracted with TMF to provide QPP assistance to clinicians in small (15 or fewer clinicians) and rural practices and health professional shortage areas (HPSA) in Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico and Texas.

TMF created this online hub of resources and recorded webinars for QPP and MIPS-eligible providers. All resources are current through Feb. 15, 2022. This includes educational webinars, on-demand videos and dozens of fact sheets, articles and guides.

TMF MIPS Toolbox

The Toolbox is a free online application to help clinicians organize and monitor their MIPS participation.
