2020 MIPS Proposed Rule: Key Highlights

By Erin Heilman. Posted Aug 02, 2019 in Quality Reporting, MACRA/MIPS Program, Academy

What’s in store for MIPS 2020? Earlier this week, CMS dropped the 2020 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) proposed rule. The rule provides a pretty good snapshot of the future for MIPS over the next several years. They are evening out the category distribution and upping the threshold requirements. Also of note, they plan to post 2018 MIPS performance to Physician Compare. Keep in mind that these are just the proposed changes. The final rule will come out in late fall.

We've provided the links to the CMS proposed rule documents below.

If you don’t have time to read through all 1,700+ pages, 🙄 we've put together highlights of the proposed MIPS changes. Remember when you partner with a MIPS vendor like Medisolv, our clinical experts work closely with you—every step of the way—to help you gain a better understanding of the changes to MIPS and guide you through a successful MIPS submission year after year.

Upcoming Webinar:

The new hybrid readmission measure is moving from voluntary to mandatory over the next several years. Last year, CMS held the hybrid measure pilot program. They received 80 submissions, 69 of which came from Medisolv. 

Medisolv’s Kristen Beatson, who was instrumental in Medisolv’s hybrid submissions to CMS, will provide you everything you need to know about this new measure type.

In this free educational webinar, you will learn all about the hybrid measure – how it is captured and mapped in your EHR and how CMS will calculate your measure performance.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What a hybrid measure is
  • How hybrid measures are captured and mapped in your EHR
  • How CMS calculates your hybrid measure performance
  • The timeline for reporting hybrid measures to CMS
