(click to enlarge) – MIPS 5-year impact. Negative penalties are fixed, positive incentives are variable.
Because of the changes in regulation by the Trump administration, the MIPS incentives are much lower than previously projected. Over the next few years, the full incentive will slowly materialize by 2022 (Payment Year 2024), when you could receive the full 9% reward.
Though the incentives are only starting to increase, the penalties are not; you will be penalized the full amount starting NOW. In order to receive the +9% reimbursement in 2022, you need to know how to navigate the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System.

More Details About MIPS & MACRA
How Will MIPS Affect My Practice?
MACRA implementation began on January 1, 2017, with clinicians being scored on a 1 to 100-point scale. In order to avoid a penalty, eligible clinicians need to earn at least 30 points in 2019. Clinicians scoring below 30 can expect a penalty of 7%. That is a $70,000 penalty for the average practice billing $1 million in Medicare Part B. The MIPS program will become increasingly difficult with each year, eventually rising to a staggering 9 percent penalty by performance year 2020.

What is MIPS? What is MACRA?
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) was the Congressional solution to the ending of the sustainable growth rate. Each day nearly 10,000 retirees and baby boomers join the rolls of Medicare. Ten years from now Medicare would be either broke or workers would be paying 50% more on the Medicare taxes, thus reducing pay and take home income. The problem was caused by several factors. The number of workers paying for each retirees benefits is falling and the cost of providing health care is ballooning. This legislation was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support and has left us with the Quality Payment Programs, implementing new payment methods for healthcare.
The MACRA’s principle creation, the Quality Payment Programs (QPP), is designed to change the structure of reimbursements for Medicare. QPP introduced the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs). These two programs aim to change the way for which healthcare is paid. The underlying theme of both of these programs is paying for quality and value as opposed to each service rendered.
Eagle Consulting Partners are experts on MIPS and how it impacts practices. We work with practices to develop strategies to maximize their payment incentive while providing increasingly high quality, highly commutative care. Our services can help you succeed in MIPS and earn the maximum incentive.
