The ABCs of MIPs

Learn How Merit Based Incentive Payments Will Impact Your Bottom Line
Join HITECH Answers and SA Ignite for our latest show debuting June 18 at 2 pm EDT/11 am PDT. Each month we’ll address your questions on the current and future state of merit based provider payment systems. This informative one hour program has our experts covering the full spectrum of the payment program alphabet including MU, PQRS, VBM and more.
On our debut show, Tom Lee and Beth Houck will review the current state of MIPS.
Overview: On April 16, 2015, President Obama signed into law, the “Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015” (MACRA), ending annual temporary patches to prevent significant reimbursement cuts for physicians serving Medicare beneficiaries caused by the so-called Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. Under this new law, between 2015 and 2019 physicians in the Medicare program will receive an annual update of 0.5 percent. The base reimbursement rate will then hold steady at 2019 levels through 2025, while giving physicians the ability to supplement their reimbursement through payment adjustments in the newly created “Merit-Based Incentive Payment System” (MIPS) and participation in alternative payment models.
