Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
Beginning in 2019, CMS will apply a positive, negative, or neutral payment adjustment, in a budget-neutral manner, to each MIPS eligible clinician based on a composite performance score across four performance categories.
These are measures related to patient outcomes, appropriate use of medical resources, patient safety, efficiency, patient experience & care coordination. 60% of total score in Year 1.
Resource use (Cost):
These are specialty-based measures focused on efficient resource use. Cost measures would be solely based on Medicare claims, with no additional reporting requirements.
Clinical practice improvement activities:
These measures would focus on care coordination, beneficiary engagement, and patient safety. 15% of total score in Year 1.
Advancing care information:
These are measures that reflect on how well clinicians use EHR technology, especially when it comes to interoperability and information exchange. 25% of total score in Year 1.
