- Promoting Interoperability
- Improvement Activities
The first three things you need to know:
What is MIPS?
Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is a new program that combines parts of the three existing quality reporting programs: PQRS, VBPM, and MU. This program aims to ease the reporting burden on clinicians by reporting for one quality program instead of three. The system also adds a new category, called Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (CPIA).
What is APM?
An Alternative Payment Model (APM) allows you to receive added incentive payments for taking on some risks related to your patients' outcomes. If you choose to take on more risks to improve patient care through an Advanced APM, you are likely to earn a 5% incentive payment. Some providers have already started this journey via the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) initiative with support from their EHR partners, like Meditab.
Do I still have time?
Yes you do. You can report an entire year of data or only a 90 day period. You can begin January 1, 2019 and start collecting your performance data or you can choose to start anytime between January 1 and October 3, 2019. Whenever you start, you'll need to send in your performance data by March 31, 2020 and expect your first payment adjustments on January 1, 2021.
