Yesterday ICD-10. Today MIPS. Tomorrow TBD.
What is MIPS?
Under MACRA (Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015), Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is a Medicare payment program focused on quality of care, rather than quantity of care. MIPS streamlines and combines meaningful use and PQRS. Collecting data for MIPS can begin on January 1. Click here to learn more.
Do I Need to Participate?
If you're eligible for MIPS, then you must participate or face a negative Medicare payment adjustment. You're eligible to participate in MIPS if you provide care for more than 100 Medicare patients per year AND bill Medicare more than $30,000 per year. You can quickly check your eligibility on the Quality Payment Program website.
Eligible providers can choose their level of participation:
If you don’t participate, you’ll receive a negative 4% payment adjustment.
If you submit the minimum amount of 2017 data, you won’t receive a negative payment adjustment.
Submit a Partial Year
If you submit 90 days of 2017 data, you may earn a neutral or small positive payment adjustment.
If you submit a full year of 2017 data, you may earn a positive payment adjustment.
