MACRA Success with Prevounce
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) transforms Medicare physician payments from a service based model to a value based one over time. The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is the program Medicare will use to judge the 'value' of care of the majority of physicians, thereby increasing or penalizing those physician's future medicare payments.
MIPS takes into account four major categories:
60% of MIPS Score
Physicians report six out of many specific measures published by Medicare.
Advancing Care Information
25% of MIPS Score
Physicians required to report measures showing their use of certified EHR technology.
Clinical Practice Improvements
15% of MIPS Score
Physicians report clinical improvements such as care coordination, patient safety, etc.
Will be phased into MIPS Score over time.
CMS measures based on claims and availability of patient volume. No reporting required by physician.
