Medicare providers ONLY have one option in 2017.
You must accurately report MIPS data based on MACRA’S Final Rule,
or you’ll see a 4% reduction in your future Medicare payments.
MACRA’s new Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) changes the way Medicare pays you. And unless you fully understand how to report your quality data under MIPS, your future Medicare payments will be significantly reduced (decreasing up to 4% initially, then later up to 9%).
The bottom line is that your future Medicare payments will be reduced if you don’t fully understand how to report your quality data under MACRA’s new Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
The new MIPS reporting guidelines apply to all physicians (including MD, DO, DDS, DMD, DPM, OD, DC) as well as PAs, NPs, CNS and CRNAs. There are no exclusions due to specialty or practice size. Even providers that don’t see patients face-to-face must comply. Also, your specialty and practice size don’t exclude anyone like previous government quality reporting programs did. Basically, if you report Medicare and are an MD, DO, DDS, DMD, DPM, OD, DC, PA, NP, CNS, CRNA or don’t qualify for an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) you MUST report MIPS quality data in order to stop your future reimbursement from being cut. (Even providers that don’t see patients face-to-face must now comply.)
It’s vitally important that you figure out how to accurately report your MIPS data NOW, and that’s where nationally recognized expert, Jeanne J. Chamberlin, MA, FACMPE, can help. During her 60-minute training session, Jeanne will not only walk you through this new complex rule, she’ll provide you the specifics of how you can comply with MIPS. In fact, if you report your data accurately, you have an opportunity to receive a reimbursement increase from Medicare.
MACRA affects just about every Medicare provider in the country, and approximately 80% of clinicians will report under MIPS. All medical specialties and practice sizes need to comply with the new MACRA regulations. It’s the only way to ensure you continue to get paid what you deserve. Time is running out. You must master the details of this new payment methodology or risk the impact to your bottom line.
