As expected, year 3 of the Quality Payment Program (MIPS and A-APM) brings with it a host of program updates, changes and complexity. In this session, Bruce Maki, Altarum Regulatory & Incentive Program Analyst, will review the 2019 MIPS rules and updates as well as answer attendee questions to ensure participants know what they need to successfully participate in 2019, protecting (and hopefully increasing) those valuable Medicare reimbursement rates.


Year 3 of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) brings policy changes based on stakeholder feedback from the first two years: reduce burden, improve patient outcomes, establish meaningful measures and expand participation options. For the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track, this includes updates to eligibility, submission methods and category measures/scoring. Several new clinician types are now subject to payment adjustments and updated low-volume threshold definitions provides a new "opt-in" choice for clinicians that may have been excluded in prior years. Program year 2019 solidifies MIPS as a pathway to the Alternative Payment Model (APM) track, which has also undergone minor updates.
