Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Quality-based measurements are no longer optional. Your 2019 payment adjustment is calculated from 2017 performance reporting. Practices must start collecting performance data by October 2 to be eligible. Dive into the new payment models and learn your team’s role in ensuring that measures are properly selected and reported. Your EHR may not be accurate. Learn how to cross-check your performance data before you report. If your practice has historically been a high performer under the MU, you may need to reevaluate performance status under MIPS.

This session provides important physician reporting and reimbursement information for the new Quality Payment Programs (QPP) including the Merit-based Incentive Payment Systems (MIPS), and Alternative Payment Models (APMs). Learn how your data and metrics drive the new payment models. Understand how new quality measures are scored by comparison to national benchmarks and how the government will use your data. Gain insight into the role of patient engagement and technology for reimbursement under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). Learn strategies to assess and evaluate current communication processes among coders, clinicians, and providers, and identify gaps that could impact your reimbursement.
