PART 2. LAST OPPORTUNITY! CMS QUALITY PAYMENT PROGRAM REVIEW MACRA-MIPs/APMs Webinar Emphasizing Pain Management SCORING and QRUR
The Final Rule of the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System, MIPS, and Alternative Payment Models, APMs, was published on 10/14/16, and is ~ 2,300 pages. Now identified as the Quality Payment Program, QPP, it is extensive in scope to reward or penalize providers for performing certain activities in four performance categories. The four categories are: (1) Quality, which will replaces PQRS, (2) Cost, attributed to Medicare providers by a complex set of statistical formulas replacing the Value Modifier (3) Improvement Activities, a new category of 90+ undertakings and (4) Advancing Care Information, which replaces Meaningful Use. 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 2017 the penalty is 4%, but the bonus could be 3 to 4 times that amount. Physicians must educate themselves and their practice managers on how to understand and potentially achieve high scores in the new Quality Payment Program and avoid costly penalties in their Medicare Part B claims. Although Cost will have a weight of 0% for 2017 the Quality Resource Use Report, QRUR, will continue to be calculated for providers. This report emphasizes the cost of a providers care compared to his peers. An understanding of this report will enhance a provider's ability to understand how he can potentially improve decision making to increase quality and decrease cost.
