March 31 is 2017 QPP & MIPS Reporting Deadline – 4 Days from Now!
All 2017 Data Due and CMS Submission Portal Closes March 31
First Quarter Quality Data Due to VCSQI by April 16th!
Q1 2018 data for your selected TCPI quality metrics are due to Eddie Fonner by April 16th. Please contact Eddie, Rick Koss or Ivan if you have questions about how to submit these data. It is aggregate data (numerators and denominators) for your selected measures, NOT patient-level data.
2018 QPP & MIPS: What’s Different & What You Should Do NOW
- Quality category– You must submit data for 6 measures, for the full year; quality weight drops from 60% to 50% of total MIPS score (10% went to Cost category). You should already be collecting quality data and submitting through claims or entering it into your EMR or registry.
- Advancing Care Information– Some measure changes (see fact sheet below); submit for total of 100 points
- Improvement Activities– No change; try to select up to 4 activities that total 40 points
- Cost – included as 10% of total MIPS score; CMS will calculate your data for this category (see fact sheet below).
