MIPS

If we are not using an EHR, am I correct in that we have an automatic 25% reduction in MIPs? Is it possible for a practice not using an EHR to qualify for a bonus or to at least avoid the reduction?

    As I understand it....no automatic reduction for the transition year of 2017, but probably in the future.
    For this year FY 2017, if you report even one of the measures under Quality or CPIA for at least 90 days you can avoid the penalty. If you report for longer or more than 1 measure you can possibly even earn a positive adjustment.

  • ​What is done in 2017 will be reflected in the penalty or incentive in 2019.

  • Karl,

    If this helps you, about 90% of yesterday's newsletter was about this and while you can glean from it - please don't forward it.

  • Just a reminder that Part B News - host of this listserv - has already published several articles about MIPS. Subscribers may submit questions directly to the editorial team.

    Thanks!
  • ?Quality measures have specific diagnoses that must be used when submitting them. If you go onto CMS or app website the diagnoses will be listed under each specific measure.
