Optimize your MIPS Score and Protect your Reimbursements
MIPS is a point-based program and understanding how to earn MIPS points is critical to avoid a 9% penalty. The MIPS program continues to change and evolve each year as it meets the goals laid out in the MACRA law and carried out by CMS. Since the program was implemented in 2017 the points threshold to avoid a penalty has grown from 3 to 60 out of a possible 100 MIPS points; the penalty has increased from 3% to 9% of annual Medicare reimbursements; and, the number of patients required to be reported on has increased from 20 patients to all patients for all payors. With the rules changing every year, the strategy you previously used to score MIPS points and report may no longer be optimal. If you want to avoid the 9% penalty in 2021 and beyond, you must think differently and evolve your strategy for MIPS.
