*Numbers are estimated based on data collected by the Modernizing Medicine, Inc. Qualified Registry for the 2022 reporting year using the MIPS scoring criteria published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”); may not reflect scores for all MIPS categories; final results may vary. Prior performance doesn’t guarantee future results.

Why MIPS Performance Matters

Under the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), your Medicare reimbursement amount is driven, in part, by your ability to show high-quality and low-cost care as compared to your peers. If you need advisory services to help you achieve your goals, ModMed® has your back.

ModMed is a recognized leader in value-based care solutions for specialty practices, and now that 2022 MIPS is over, we’re proud to announce that our EMA providers achieved outstanding preliminary results.

MIPS and MACRA Explained

When the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) became law in 2015, it immediately shifted the thought process behind Medicare payments. CMS wants to encourage physicians to provide high-quality, low-cost care. If you fail to report MIPS data to CMS, you could receive a negative payment adjustment.

THE EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE BONUS IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

However, there is still the possibility for a positive payment adjustment depending on your final score. For example, a score of 100% in 2022 yielded a positive payment adjustment of 8.25%.

2024 Reporting Year Adjustments

MIPS puts your bottom line on the line

For the 2024 performance year, you can receive up to a 9% negative payment adjustment in 2026 (the payment year).

For example, if you bill $1.5 million per year in Medicare, your 2024 MIPS performance can make up to a $135,000 difference in your income in 2026.

Can you afford not to track your score?

As a leader in value-based medicine for specialty practices, ModMed can provide you with tools for MIPS success.

What makes up MIPS?

MACRA established the Quality Payment Program (QPP), which consolidated prior quality reporting programs and added a new component to create MIPS, with factors in four weighted performance categories:

Data is key to helping you see where your practice stands in each performance category and where you may have room for improvement. Having an advanced EHR system like EMA to help automate your MIPS data collection and track your score will be crucial to the prosperity of your practice under value-based care.

We encourage you to visit CMS’ Quality Payment Program site to learn more about MIPS and MACRA.

The Future of MIPS (MVPs)

MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs) is a new optional way to report MIPS, which started in 2023. The goal of this program is to further reduce the administrative burden of MIPS on physicians and their staffs. It will only be available to certain specialties to start, but eventually it will replace traditional MIPS. If you plan to report to MVPs, you’ll need to register directly with CMS. We expect registration to open in April 2024.
