A brief history of MIPS
In 2015 Congress passed MACRA (Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act). The bill was designed to lower healthcare costs and improve patient care. From MACRA was born the Quality Payment Program (QPP), which was intended to create a more predictable and sustainable model for the Medicare reimbursement system. The QPP consists of two major tracks:
MIPS is the default track for over 80% of clinicians. The Advanced APM route is a bonus track for providers willing to assume a larger financial risk under value-based payment contracts for a large portion of their patient population.
Although the majority of providers will fall into the MIPS track, many physician groups and hospitals will work towards optimizing their performance under MIPS to prepare for future participation in the Advanced APM model.
