MSSP Corner

There is a lot of information floating around about MIPS these days. In light of this, I wanted to take a moment to address some key high level points about what MIPS means for your practice. Practices participating in the MSSP program will report as a MIPS APM. This is an important distinction from standard MIPS, because the Alliance will cover some of your MIPS reporting activities.
The Alliance will cover the quality portion of MIPS through our regular annual GPRO (PQRS) reporting process. Your participation in the Alliance also earns you 100% of your Clinical Practice Improvement Activity (CPIA) score for 2017. The Resource Utilization portion has been waved for this introductory year.
This leaves one final section of MIPS reporting for the practice, Advancing Care Information (ACI). ACI is a replacement for Meaningful Use (MU). In prior years practices have been responsible for Meaningful Use while the Alliance has handled PQRS. This will continue to be the case going forward. I have summarized responsibility by the Alliance and practice below:
If you have any questions about this process please reach out to Thomas Magrino at 540-741-3085.
