Boosting MIPS Scores Sets the Stage for Increased Revenue

MIPSPYA Principal Martie Ross and Consulting Senior Aaron Elias co-authored an article, “Boosting MIPS Scores Sets the Stage for Increased Revenue,” which recently was published in Physicians Practice.

Article Excerpt:

Across all MIPS components, physicians have timing and participation flexibility for meeting MIPS requirements in 2017.  CMS considers 2017, the first year of MIPS, a transition year during which physicians can meet lesser requirements for shorter periods of time to avoid any financial penalties.  This performance year remains an excellent opportunity for physicians to attempt to meet full requirements with little downside (time and effort) and realize the potential for significant financial upside (up to +12 percent of base fee-for-service payments in 2019).

For additional guidance related to MIPS requirements, or to request a speaker for your organization or event, contact one of our executives below, (800) 270-9629.
