Good news for procrastinators: Providers have one last chance to beat the 4% Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) penalty and possibly earn a small bonus. In addition, clinicians who tried to participate in MIPS this year but discovered they made mistakes can also take advantage of the last 90-day performance period for MIPS. However, they must start reporting by October 2, and that means they need to create a plan that is ready to roll.

During this webinar, participants will learn how to create and implement a MIPS plan that protects providers from the MIPS pay penalty and works for every member of their practice—including physicians, nonphysician practitioners, and practice staff.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Construct a plan to beat the 4% cut for 2019—or take a shot at a small bonus—with 90 days of MIPS performance
  • Learn the special rules that apply to nonphysician practitioners to avoid unnecessary work
  • Delegate tasks to streamline the performance and reporting of the Quality, Advancing Care Information, and Improvement categories
  • Protect their practice against MIPS audits by retaining the documentation Medicare requires for each MIPS activity

Agenda

  • Take advantage of the last MIPS performance window of 2017 to avoid the 4% cut or earn a bonus
  • Determine which pace and reporting method will work for clinicians and practice staff
  • Identify and avoid common pitfalls of MIPS reporting
  • Create and implement a plan for the final performance period
  • Get answers to questions about MIPS 2017 during a live Q&A session

  • Coders
  • Billers
  • Medical practice staff
