Back in January of 2021 our CEO, Lauren Patrick, wrote "MVPs – Will they replace ‘traditional’ MIPS?" At that time there were a lot of questions about how CMS would implement their new reporting framework, MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs). Starting with the 2023 Program Year (PY), MIPS eligible providers have two pathways they can take to satisfy their obligations. In this blog, I will review what an MVP looks like and how you may want to implement them within your practice.
With the release of the 2023 PFS Final Rule, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized most of the proposed changes for the QPP / Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program that had been released in the Proposed Rule last July.
We are seeing that while the payment threshold is holding at 75 points, it can be tougher to achieve that threshold score with the changes in the program for 2023.
