Gear Up For MIPS 2019
Posted by admin
For 2019, CMS finalized the changes in the scoring and other factors for MIPS. The following are the notable changes:
The performance threshold is set at 30 points and you need at least 75 points to receive your exceptional performance bonus.
CMS adds physical therapists, occupational therapists, clinical social workers, and clinical psychologists to the list of MIPS eligible clinicians.
The small practice bonus is now applied to the Quality category instead of being a stand-alone bonus.
The Quality category now accounts for 45 percent of your composite score.
The Cost category now accounts for 15 percent of your composite score.
Eligible clinicians are now required to use the 2015 edition of Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT).
CMS constantly improves its regulations and processes for the benefit of the clinicians. As more clinicians become eligible to report for MIPS, we can expect additional positive changes in the future.
