There's no place like a patient-centered medical home. That's what a close reading of the voluminous merit-based incentive payment system (MIPS) quality-reporting and alternative payment model proposed rule, issued April 27, tells us about policymakers' delivery model du jour.
In March, we shared results of the value-based modifier (VBM) program, which saw winners and losers in terms of 2016 payment rates. Practices that saw a big pay boost (up to +32%) clearly did well on their measures reporting -- and you can seize the opportunity to improve your bottom line as well.
As physician practices grapple with Medicare's onerous quality-reporting programs, worry about ICD-10 implementation and, you know, perform that small task known as caring for their patients, a significant question looms on the horizon: Will they step into the value-based world of alternative payment models (APM)?
Get a glimpse of your cost-based performance with the mid-year quality resource and use reports (QRURs) that CMS recently made available to all eligible providers.
Quality reporting in 2014 will really pay off for 128 groups this year. The baseline upward adjustment is 15.92% and that amount doubled for groups that treated high risk patients.
