The Final Rule of the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System for 2018, MIPS, was published on 11/02/17, and is 1,200 pages.  Identified as the Quality Payment Program, QPP, it is extensive in scope to reward or penalize providers for performing certain measures in four performance categories.  Last year 2017, the first year of the QPP, was modified and contains changes to the reporting requirements for 2018.  The four categories are: (1) Quality(2) Cost(3) Improvement Activities, and (4) Advancing Care Information.  The four categories result in a final score of between 0 to 100 points.  Depending on the provider's final score, a penalty/reward is assessed, or the provider remains neutral.  For 2018 the penalty is 5%.  Selecting certain reporting options avoids penalties and even lead to bonus payments on future claims.  MIPS replaces PQRS, MU, and the VM (value modifier) programs, but rolls these same programs into the 3 performance categories above and the new category implemented in 2017, Improvement Activities, has been expanded for 2018.
