MIPS Quality Reporting

A modern RCM company needs to offer QPP support … enter MIPS Measure Assurance Services

What is MIPS?

Beginning in 2017, the Merit Based Incentive Payment Program (MIPS) under the Quality Payment Program (QPP), through its many faceted performance categories and associated performance metrics, will determine provider payment adjustments, either positive or negative, to the basic Medicare fee schedule two years following the reporting year. Private insurance companies are poised to follow Medicare’s lead relative to QPP adoption in subsequent years. These new mandates will not only impact your bottom line, but may also affect the overall rating of your practice.
