This MLN Connects™ video presentation provides an overview of the value-based payment modifier, and how it relates to the physician quality reporting system, or PQRS program, so that all Medicare physicians will understand how the value modifier can effect Medicare reimbursement starting in 2015.
This presentation educates healthcare professionals on a variety of topics that are essential to the value-based payment modifier, including:

• An overview of the value modifier
• Distinction between Medicare physicians and eligible professionals in terms of who will actually be accessed the value modifier, and who is included in determining group size
• Relation to other quality program incentives and payment adjustments, mainly PQRS and Meaningful Use
• The 50 percent threshold option for groups who choose to have their EPs participate as individuals
• Quality and cost measures that are used in calculating the value modifier
• Quality tiering, mandatory in 2014
• Accessing your QRUR report so you can see how you performed in your reporting.

This presentation also walks through a very detailed decision tree that has been created to help providers ask the necessary questions on determining how the value modifier in 2016 will be affected by their PQRS participation this year.
