MIPS Group Reporting

MIPS 2018 Eligibility Check and Reporting Options

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:

MIPS Score Portability and the Ancient Wisdom

“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.

Picking Submission Method for Quality Category – What’s the Big Deal?

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.
