October 2nd marks the very last day for eligible clinicians to start collecting MIPS data for partial year submission. If this fall reporting deadline is missed, clinicians and/or groups will not be eligible to receive a positive payment adjustment in 2019. Rather, they will be faced with two outcomes:
Given the flexibility of the MIPS program this year, it would be a missed opportunity for groups and clinicians to submit just 90-days of performance data to Medicare to earn a moderate positive payment adjustment – maybe even the max adjustment – in 2019. Learn more about MIPS and “Pick Your Pace” here.
While it might seem a bit daunting if you haven’t started, there is still a short window of time for you and/or your group to select the required number of measures and get up and running before the partial submission deadline passes.
In order to participate in the ‘partial submission’ pace as outlined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, eligible clinicians and groups will need to submit 90 consecutive days worth of performance data to Medicare across the following MIPS scoring categories:
For clinicians in rural or health professional shortage areas, or for those clinicians considered non-patient facing or “hospital-based,” you may face reduced reporting requirements. Learn more about these special status groups under MIPS here.
Submission methods may vary based on the measure.
