What’s New for MIPS in 2020? – Review of Ophthalmology

Some changes have been made to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System. Here’s what you need to know.

This article addresses the following questions:

  • I saw Medicare has released the 2020 Proposed Rule. Can you tell me if there are changes for the QPP/MIPS program next year?
  • What score do I need next year to avoid the maximum penalty in 2022?
  • Are the categories being re-weighted again in 2020?
  • What’s going to happen to the Cost category of MIPS in 2020?
  • Has there been a proposal to change the EMR area of MIPS?
  • How about Improvement Activities (IA)? Any changes there?
  • What changes are afoot for the Quality area of MIPS?
  • What other changes should ophthalmologists be aware of?
