Choosing what MIPS measures to report for your practice can be overwhelming, especially when you are reporting on behalf of several providers, across multiple specialties, and in some cases at different practice locations. An important consideration is whether group reporting could reduce the amount of time and resources your practice spends on your data reporting activities, while maximizing your MIPS scoring potential.
The 2018 MIPS reporting year is well underway. CMS is continuing to offer some flexibility during Year 2 of the program, but the financial stakes are higher for not reporting or failing to meet the minimum MIPS threshold. Whether you have already started collecting data or are still developing your MIPS reporting plan, there are some important changes you need to know to ensure your reporting stays on the right track.
CMS recently announced it is changing the name of the MIPS Advancing Care Information category to the Promoting Interoperability category. While the name is different, the requirements for reporting this MIPS category are the same.
Not sure if you are required to participate in MIPS for 2018? There are no changes in the "types" of clinicians eligible to participate this year. However, the Low-Volume Threshold was revised to include clinicians who bill more than $90,000 annually in Medicare Part B allowed charges AND provide care to more than 200 Medicare patients. CMS offers providers an easy way to check their individual and group level participation status online.
