Overcoming Challenges to MIPS Participation

 2018 – QPP and MIPS – What’s Different and What You Should be Doing 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).
