MGMA to CMS: Shorten 2018 MIPS reporting period

04/25/2018 5:35 PM | Rebekah Francis (Administrator)

MGMA authored a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which was signed by more than 40 physician organizations, urging the agency to shorten the 2018 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) quality data reporting period from 365 to 90 days. Despite being held accountable for data tracking and collection as of Jan. 1, 2018, physicians were not informed of basic eligibility information until early April, and the MIPS website has yet to be updated with key 2018 program information, including final quality measures. MGMA and the coalition also recommended CMS maintain a shorter reporting period in future years to reduce administrative burden and ensure physicians have sufficient time to report after receiving MIPS feedback. MGMA has long championed a 90-day reporting period to give group practices greater flexibility to focus their attention on improving patient care, as opposed to reporting for reporting’s sake.
