Healthcare providers face a 5% pay cut if they don’t update and implement their Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) programs on January 1, 2018, and they’ll have to get ready while they prepare for other start-of-year changes. In addition, the revised Quality Payment Program rule contains retroactive changes that would affect the way they participate in the MIPS this year.

Join expert speaker Jeanne Chamberlin, MA, FACMPE, as she helps participants prepare to beat the 5% pay cut. She will also give attendees an early look at what CMS has planned to eliminate end-of-year confusion and identify potential opportunities to boost revenue with additional bonuses.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Prepare to beat the 5% pay cut by evaluating how proposed changes would impact Quality Payment Program participation
  • Eliminate end-of-year confusion with an early look at what CMS has planned
  • Identify potential opportunities to boost revenue with additional bonuses
  • Ensure their ideas make it to CMS by submitting comments on the proposed rule before the August 21deadline
