Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NAPLES, Fla. - Feb 14, 2017 - The recently released free tool, MIPS vs. APM Decision Tree 2017, helps providers select the correct MACRA compliance option for their individual situation. This is a vital first step to avoid the negative financial impact these new regulations can have on a provider’s future Medicare reimbursement.
Effective Jan. 1, 2017, how physician practices participate with MACRA determines whether their future Medicare reimbursement will be increased or decreased — and it all starts with choosing the right compliance method. Selecting the wrong option can lead to significant decreases in future Medicare reimbursement. Whereas selecting the correct path can actually result in getting paid at higher rates for the Medicare services provided.
MIPS vs. APM Decision Tree 2017 was designed in conjunction with Coding Leader’s 2017 expert report, MIPS Quality Reporting: Avoid Medicare Part B Payment Reductions. The tool allows providers to answer a few yes-or-no questions to help them determine which MACRA program — MIPS or Advanced APMs — is the best reporting option for them. And if MIPS is indicated as their best reporting option, the expert report, MIPS Quality Reporting: Avoid Medicare Part B Payment Reduction, picks up where the decision tree leaves of. Together this new tool and expert report offers detailed, how-to advice to make complying with the complexities of MACRA less difficult and more accurate for practices nationwide. National quality reporting expert, Jeanne J. Camberlin, MA, FACMPE, Practice Management Consultant at MSOC Health, is the report’s expert contributor.
