MACRA 2020: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed policy changes to the Medicare Access and CHIP Authorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), also known as the Quality Payment Program. The proposal includes a new way for clinicians to participate in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), which will be called the MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs). Beginning in 2021, MIPS will change the reporting and methodologies on the current measures of Quality, Cost, Promoting Interoperability, and Improvement Activities.
The agency has issued a request for information, “Transforming MIPS: MIPS Value Pathways Request for Information (RFI),” to obtain feedback on MVPs from clinicians, patients, specialty societies, and other stakeholders. The deadline is looming, as public comments on the proposed rules are due by September 27, 2019. Comments may be submitted electronically through the regulations.gov website. For more information, review the fact sheet on the 2020 Quality Payment Program proposed rule.
