Review Your Practice's 2017 MIPS Performance Feedback–Again!
By Featured article |
Addressing and correcting the errors in the scoring logic resulted in changes to the 2019 MIPS payment adjustment. Additionally, to ensure CMS maintains the budget neutrality that is required by law under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), some clinicians will see changes in their payment adjustment because of the reapplication of budget neutrality. These revisions were made to the performance feedback on the QPP website on Sept. 13, 2018.
Practices should sign in to the QPP website using their EIDM credentials as soon as possible to review their performance feedback. If you believe an error still exists with your 2019 MIPS payment adjustment calculation, there is still time to file a Targeted Review. CMS has extended the deadline to Oct. 15, 2018.
For more information, contact CMS at QPP@cms.hhs.gov. If you or your practice needs additional expertise when reviewing the performance feedback, contact the Quality Reporting Engagement Group. The team of experts, with more than 25 years of combined experience dealing with Meaningful Use, PQRS and MIPS attestations and submissions, is available to answer questions and help you with the process.
