Through a program that benefits your patients and generates significant revenue for your practice
More information on the background for MACRA is available here (link to the background page). The Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is the program where an estimated 90% of Medicare providers will be enrolled in 2017. The Alternative Payment Models (APMs), which includes Advanced Patient-Centered Medical Homes, will likely have limited enrollment in the first few years of MACRA. Since most providers will be in MIPS it may be best to prepare your practice for this program, which focuses on quality of care, cost-effective care, use of certified EHRs, and practice improvement activities. Points will be earned in each category to create the Composite Performance Score, which will be a public score and range from 0-100 points. Your score will determine payment adjustments of up to +/- 9% by 2022.
