MIPS and What it Means for Your Practice

The Merit Based Incentive Program (MIPS) is taking the place of the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and Electronic Health Records Attestation (EHR). Failure to participate in this new program can result in a decrease in your Medicare payments. Dr. Ron Short will explain how to utilize this program in your practice.

You will learn:
-If you are exempt from participating in MIPS
-What it will mean to your practice if you are exempt
-What needs to be reported under MIPS
-How to report required elements

Medicare’s Quality Payment Program: Getting Paid for Value Instead of Volume

The government has become increasingly concerned with how they spend money in the healthcare sector. As part of the latest proposal to fix this, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) was passed in 2015. This law changes reimbursement to remunerate providers more when they provide high quality care rather than just more care. It rewards value over volume. It also ends the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula that had been in use to determine Medicare payment for many years. And, it combines three other quality-based programs into one. It’s biggest and lasting impact may be how it influences the way that patients select the provider they choose to see.

The Future of Reimbursement: Medicare’s Quality Payment Program

You may have heard rumblings about MACRA, MIPS, MU, PQRS, VBM, and some other acronyms from CMS (Medicare.) Don’t get overwhelmed, Dr. Gwilliam will take you through the basics and let you know what you need to do in 2017 to avoid a payment adjustment (penalty), and maybe even qualify for incentives (up to 5%! woohoo!) Even if you don’t treat Medicare beneficiaries, this model could be the future of payment for healthcare. This is a webinar that you won’t want to miss.

Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) 2016

Presented by Ron Short DC, MCS-P, CPC

Tuesday @ 10:15 AM PT, 11:15 AM MT, 12:15 PM CT, 1:15 PM ET

The Physician Quality Reporting System will affect you and your practice more than ever before. Failure to report PQRS measures this year will result in a 2% cut in your Medicare payments in 2018. It will also result in you being assigned the lowest level Value Based Modifier which could result in an additional cut.
