July 12, 2018: MGMA statement on Release of Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule

Advocacy Statement - July 12, 2018

July 12, 2018: MGMA Statement by Anders Gilberg, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs, on Release of Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule:


WASHINGTON, D.C. - “MGMA is disappointed that CMS plans to continue its burdensome 365-day MIPS quality reporting policy rather than 90 consecutive days. Reducing the reporting burden would allow more physicians to participate in MIPS and focus the program on rewarding quality care rather than quality reporting. Requiring medical groups to submit excessive amounts of data to the government has little impact on the quality of care delivered to Medicare beneficiaries.

“Today’s rule proposes to require physicians to deploy costly EHR upgrades for 2019 and takes further steps toward implementing burdensome appropriate use criteria. At first glance, the rule doesn’t meet MGMA’s definition of administrative simplification.”
