The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a webinar to discuss the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Value Pathways (MVPs) proposed in a CMS Request for Information (RFI) appearing in the 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday, September 4th from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (ET). Registration for the webinar is open here.
CMS expects the proposed MVPs to reduce reporting requirements for physicians. Currently, MIPS physicians are required to report on numerous criteria related to the four MIPS measurement categories: Quality, Cost, Promoting Interoperability, and Improvement Activities. The new reporting requirements would be specialty-specific, aligning more with Alternative Payment Models (APMs) and are intended to simplify the MIPS program.
More information and the RFI can be found in the 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule. Comments are due on September 27, 2019.
