What is MIPS?

The Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) is positioned to replace the Sustainable Rate Growth (SRG) formula for Medicare payments to providers. The program shifts the way Medicare fees will be paid in 2019, from a service-based model to a performance-based model which incentivizes the end-value brought to the patient.

MACRA’s value-based reimbursement system is called the Quality Payment Program (QPP), with two paths for participation: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs).


Who is affected by MIPS

If you bill more than $30,000 and care for more than 100 Medicare patients per year, you are subject to MIPS reporting beginning on January 1, 2017.

MIPS eligible clinicians (physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and certified registered nurse anesthetists) will be required to participate in one of two QPP tracks in order to avoid negative payment adjustments up to -4% in 2019, increasingly yearly to -9% per practitioner by 2022.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) expects over 600,000 providers to be affected by MIPS in 2017.

Understanding the MIPS Composite Score

Under MIPS, practitioners are assigned a composite performance score calculated using weighted performance areas:

Quality (60%)
Advancing Care Information (25%)
Improvement Activities (15%)
Cost (tracked in 2017, but not weighted until 2018)
The composite performance score will determine the adjustment that will be made to the Medicare Part B base rate beginning in 2019.

Strong performers are eligible for significant incentive payments – up to 4% in 2019 – while those not submitting data in 2017 will receive a minus 4% payment adjustment. That percentage increases over time, maxing out at plus or minus 9% in 2022 and beyond.

Looking into each of the four categories under MIPS, measuring performance can seem intimidating. Under Quality, providers can choose from a list of 200 measures which they want to report, based on a unique specialty and patient mix. Thankfully technologies such as our own can be leveraged to automate and manage many of these metrics.
