MIPS 101

In 2017, providers across the country are transitioning from PQRS to MIPS. Why? Because previous Medicare reimbursement programs PQRS, Meaningful Use and Value-Based Modifier are now joined in one streamlined program called the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

Until now, Medicare paid providers based on volume, instead of based on the quality and value of care. MIPS moves providers away from traditional fee-for-service and into a pay-for-performance model. Incentives are based on performance versus peers nationally.
