In Asking for MIPS Flexibilities, Providers Make Legitimate Points

Medicare Payment Policies

Quality Payment Program

MGMA and other leading healthcare organizations recentely sent a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) about reducing the burden that the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) requirements have placed on clinicians. Rajiv Leventhal, in a recent Healthcare Informatics article, discusses the core request of the letter in reducing the data reporing period for the :Quality" component of MIPS from a full year to 90 days. 

The article sites the statement of Anders Gilberg, senior vice president of government affairs at MGMA: “MGMA is very disappointed that CMS quadrupled the length of the quality reporting period under MIPS from the current 90 days to 365 days in 2018. This fourfold increase to the quality reporting requirements is in stark contrast to the agency’s statements today that the final rule reduces regulatory burdens. CMS is in effect prioritizing quantity over quality and giving physicians less than 60 days to prepare for the 2018 MIPS requirements.”
