Selecting the best quality reporting option
In response to complaints and concerns about the proposed January 1, 2017 launch date for the new Medicare Merit-Based Incentive Program (MIPS), The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced four options for submitting data.
These options are designed to give physicians more flexibility and a relaxed timeline that allow practices to “pick their pace” for participating in the first year of the Quality Payment Program.
Although CMS’ final rule won’t be released until November, now is the time to familiarize yourself with these options and determine the best course of action for your practice. This article explains each option in detail and outlines the importance of selecting the right option now to avoid potential penalties and lower performance scores later.
