Learn More about CMS’ Proposed MIPS Value Pathways

August 30, 2019
Policy Snapshot

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released a proposed rule outlining changes in the Quality Payment Program (QPP). The rule contains a request for information (RFI) on ways to simplify the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) by creating a new reporting mechanism through what the agency is calling MIPS Value-Pathway (MVPs). These pathways would allow practitioners to bypass the traditional MIPS reporting across the four different categories. CMS is asking for comments on the rule as many details are still to be determined. To help understand the new MVPs, CMS will host a webinar discussing the MVP proposed framework and RFI. The webinar is set to take place on Wednesday, September 4, from 1:30 to 2:30 PM ET.

Comments on the proposed rule are due September 27. The Society is currently reviewing this proposal and will submit comments as appropriate.
