How do I know if I am eligible for MIPS 2021? If that’s the question you are wanting to ask, you are in the right place. Not only do we explain to our reporting clinicians their eligibility status, but also tell them how to report MIPS data. As a third-party intermediary, we want our clients to know that their compliance status turns green with us regardless of the time of the year they decide to submit measures.
final score range
& their weightage
Why is it crucial for clinicians to report MIPS 2021? Whether it is the MIPS quality measures or measures for other categories, the sole purpose of this program is to ensure quality and decrease the overall cost of healthcare. With almost 5 years into MIPS & MACRA program, we have managed to improve patient outcomes through the application of measures. That’s what the program does and that’s why you must keep up with it.
What you have to do is obtain a score of a minimum of 60 out of 100 points to avoid a penalty as decided in the CY 2020 Quality Payment Program Final Rule.
Back in MIPS 2020, the minimum points to avoid penalty stood at 45 points.
Besides, the exceptional performance threshold for PY 2021 stands at 85 points similar to what it was back in 2020.
How many MIPS incentives does one receive as a result of reporting proactively? It depends on the accuracy of MIPS submission and measures you choose as an individual or group.
We have to find measures most suitable for your practice and submit them accurately. In case you have switched to a new EHR system, select and report accordingly for the best results.
The MIPS final score depends on selected measures and their scoring potential. On the whole, the trick to scoring big in MIPS Quality reporting is a mixture of quick intellect, experience, and accuracy all at once.
Ask yourself which performance categories do I have to report?
As an eligible clinician or group, it is a no-brainer that you are supposed to attest to four performance categories: Quality, Cost, Improvement Activities, and Promoting Interoperability.
The four categories judge the performance of practices via measures. Each category, with a highlighted weight, has a specific role to play. The 2021 MIPS requirements include adequate reporting with accuracy for the time windows made mandatory by CMS.
