Medicare Part B Providers with an MIPS Test in 2017 or 2019

If you are a Medicare Part B provider who meets the definition of a eligible clinician, you should plan to participate in the MIPS program in the year of 2017: or you will be subject to a 4% payment adjustment on Medicare Part B reimbursements in 2019. The minimum amount of data required to meet the requirements of the test is defined for each category. Eligible clinicians may be required to report additional data for each category if they want to meet the requirements.

NACOR Participants Must Registrate in QCDDR orQR

NACOR participants must first enroll in QCDR orQR to do so. If you are already a NACOR member, you must sign up for the current performance year by selecting QCDR or QR. To enroll, you must complete a registration form.

Models and Resources for a New Physical Practice

There are other models and resources that can be explored for your practice. The Quality Payment Program is one of the models that can be found in the value-based care options.

Quality Improvement Process

The quality improvement process is continuing, with the addition of measures to ensure quality of care, and removing measures that are no longer needed. Post-operative care will be the focus of future measures.

How to Avoid Failure of an Audit

Prepare to avoid failing an audit. Conduct a mock audit by developing a tactic for audit notification receipt and institute a step-by-step audit response process by determining which stakeholders need to be assembled. Lessons from the internal mock audit can be used to refine your process.

Bonus for Quality Performance in the Category of Electronic Reporting

You can earn a bonus for Quality performance in the category for electronic reporting of clinical quality measures. The goal is to make sure that the data is captured and reported in a way that is fair.

The QPP Website: Reporting for the Year 2019

If you choose the voluntary report option, you will receive feedback on your performance, but will not be paid based on it. If your performance data is good, you won't get a payment adjustment. The QPP website has measures for the year 2019.

You can review general requirements for Quality Measures, Promoting Interoperability, Improvement Activities and Cost Measures on the website. If you choose to report via claims, you must report at least 60 percent of eligible visits to meet data completeness standards. If you review your advice for code N620 and make sure both the activity and the MIPS code are listed for the claim, you can verify that your code has been received.

The QPP Resource Library has a fact sheet about claims-based reporting. Quality Measures will be reweighted to 60 percent, Improvement Activities to 15% and Promoting Interoperability to 25% of the final score if no cost measures can be scored. Quality Measures will be adjusted to 85% and Improvement Activities to 15% for clinicians who do not meet Promoting Interoperability and Cost requirements.

The cost category in the 2021 PY tournament

The cost category is weighted 15% of the final score for the 2021 PY. No submission will be required because the cost will be calculated by the CMS.
