[Slideshow]: MIPS 2022 Changes from the Final Rule
The traditional MIPS program is proposed to close its doors by 2027. But don’t get too excited. It doesn’t mean that your Eligible Clinicians can stop reporting. Honestly, it’s actually going to require you to learn brand new requirements and maybe even adjust the way you submit the data. While that might seem frustrating to you, CMS is making their case that this will actually be better for your Eligible Clinicians.
CMS received feedback that the MIPS program is difficult to understand and burdensome to comply with. So, they have created two new reporting paths that they believe will make compliance simpler and provide more relevant measures to Eligible Clinicians (especially specialists).
The two reporting paths are the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Value Pathways (MVPs) and the Alternative Payment Model (APM) Performance Pathway (APP). These paths are more specialized in their measures and may require adoption of digital measurement as soon as 2025.
We are going to start rolling out more articles and documentation to help your organization with understanding these programs, but for now, we thought we would start with a slideshow that highlights the key changes in 2022 that you should know about.
We've also provided the links to the CMS final rule documents below.
