If you are reporting as a group, you may need to report the All-Cause Hospital Readmission Measure (ACR). Read this post to get your questions answered about Applicability, Reporting, Case Minimum, and Scoring of the All Cause Hospital Readmission Measure.
Reporting as a group might not only be beneficial for administrative burden reduction and meeting the case-minimums, it might also help increase performance rates and the total positive payment adjustment. To understand how that is possible, read how MIPS group reporting works.
The time is ripe to direct the attention towards MIPS 2018 submissions. To get ready, the first step is to check the participation status and then evaluate the reporting options to determine the option that will get you the highest MIPS score and maximize the payment adjustment. As you embark on the preparations for second year of MIPS, there are 3 significant changes that you must be aware of:
“As you sow, so shall you reap” is an adage we are all familiar with. This ancient wisdom holds true for MIPS too. MIPS performance in 2017 will determine the payment adjustments in 2019. Furthermore, MIPS score will be linked to provider NPI and follow the providers even if they change groups or switch their reporting preferences.
The tale of Goldilocks and her penchant for finding things that are “Just Right” strikes a perfect chord with MIPS. On one hand Physician Organizations, healthcare thought leaders, and CMS are trying....
Recently Medicare Part-B providers got their much awaited MIPS eligibility status letters from CMS. If you got MIPS exempt status as individuals (NPI level), pay close attention
Decision of determining the winning combination of submission method and quality measures is a tough one. For 2017 and 2018 MIPS performance years, only one submission method is available per performance category. Evaluate the available options and pick that submission method very carefully.
