Among rheumatologists, few payment policy topics have garnered as much attention as Medicare’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), the current CMS program that modifies fee-for-service payments based on defined process and outcome measures. MIPS is complex, and its associated data collection and reporting burden disproportionately affects small practices.
Reporting Community-Relevant Measures
A number of new, rheumatology-specific quality measures are available for MIPS reporting. Nearly 300 existing MIPS quality measures, including eCQMs are also supported.
UREQA and UREQA QCDR measures have been approved by CMS for MIPS reporting in 2019.
