UNDERSTANDING MIPS IN 2021

CMS’ Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is updated for 2021 and more important than ever. If MIPS participation was mandatory for you in 2019 and 2020, you are probably assuming you’ll have to participate this year, but that’s not necessarily the case. Meanwhile, if you are contemplating participating, you need to be aware of changes to the minimum thresholds, changes to category weighting, and more. So—is it worth it?

Join us in this webinar to learn more about how the 2021 MIPS Final Rule will impact your practice. You will learn about the rule’s takeaways, how the program is becoming more challenging, and ways you can still increase your earning potential.

Highlights of the webinar:

  • Changes to MIPS performance category weighting
  • Changes to MIPS minimum threshold and payment adjustments
  • Changings to the Promoting Interoperability performance category
  • MVP postponement
  • Complex Patient Bonus opportunities
  • How COVID-19 and other exemptions will affect your payment adjustment

Session highlights:

  • Understand current MIPS rules and guidelines
  • CMS annual rule changes critical for understanding
  • How to translate MIPS standards into more revenue for your office
  • The 2020 performance attestation period is coming to a close—what you need to know
