The purpose of the MIPS Lunch and Learn Series is to provide private practice physical and occupational therapists crucial information surrounding the proposed 2019 MIPS reporting. Private practice providers, practice administrators, billers and practice owners must start preparing to implement reporting systems within their facilities to successfully report measures in 2019, which will pay providers an increase or decrease sliding from +7% to -7%. It is important providers make informed decisions on reporting to have an increased potential to receive an incentive based on the sliding payment scale.
Our MIPS Lunch and Learn sessions will review the proposed quality reporting changes and weighting, reporting thresholds and provider reporting options, the MIPS reporting period and the reporting categories and measures. These changes are based on the Year 3 Quality Payment Program (QPP) released in July 2018 as part of the Proposed Physician Fee Schedule rule.
Here are some key topics and definitions which will be reviewed:
- Who are considered Eligible Clinicians?
- What is the Low Volume Threshold?
- What are the four reporting Performance Categories?
- Should I consider Opting In?
- What is the Composite Performance Scores (CPS)?
- How does the CPS scoring correlate to my incentive in 2021?
- What is the performance and payment year?
- How do I report my Quality Measures?
- What are my first preparation steps?
