IHS and the QPP

How does the QPP impact IHS?

The QPP impacts how the Agency participates in Medicare reporting and reimbursement.

Who should be aware of these changes?

IHS staff should be aware of the Medicare payment changes and requirements, especially staff that deal with Medicare reimbursements and reporting, including: clinicians, administrators, information technology staff, business office staff, quality improvement teams, and other stakeholders. For more information about the IHS roles and responsibilities in implementing the QPP at IHS sites, please refer to the QPP IHS Roles and Responsibilities [PDF - 88 KB]. This is historical information that provides guidance in planning for data extraction and QPP reporting.
