    The Honorable Chiquita Brooks-LaSure
    Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
    Hubert H. Humphrey Building, Room 445–G 200

    Dear Administrator Brooks-LaSure:

    On behalf of the undersigned organizations representing physicians across the country, we agree with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) aims in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Value Pathway (MVP) to reduce burden and meaningfully align quality, cost, health information technology, and improvement metrics for physicians and their patients as both are consistent with congressional intent in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). We greatly appreciate the ongoing dialogue between CMS and our organizations to develop MVPs that achieve these aims, as well as the newly established public comment period to review and offer recommendations about draft MVPs. While MVPs as currently implemented are a step in the right direction, we believe there are opportunities to improve and offer recommendations for your consideration ahead of calendar year 2024 Medicare Physician Payment Schedule rulemaking.
