MACRA Compliance: Last Day of the 2017 MIPS Performance Year is December 31. It’s Not to Late to Avoid the Non-Compliance Penalty!

The CMS Quality Payment Program began on January 1, 2017 and performance in the pathway you chose this year will affect your Medicare reimbursement in 2019.

To find out if you are required to submit data to MIPS or if you are exempt this year check the online lookup tool on the Quality Payment Program website at eligibility. If you are not exempt and choose not to participate in either pathway in 2017, you will receive an automatic 4-percent pay cut on a per claim basis to your Medicare Part B payments in 2019.

There is still time to avoid the negative 4% reimbursement payment penalty in your 2019 Medicare reimbursement rates. You need only report one quality measure for one patient. CPMA recommends that doctors report three to six quality measure/patients for the quality category to help insure successful reporting.
