Starting in 2015, providers who participate in Fee-For-Service Medicare need to prepare for the Value-Based Modifier (VBM) program because their 2017 Medicare payments will be adjusted based on their 2015 performance.
The VBM has not been on the radar of most small and solo practices before now because it was only applied to groups with more than 10 providers for the first two years. But now all practices need to be aware of this program and understand how it impacts their reimbursement.
