"MIPS is going away” is an ongoing rumor among healthcare professionals following the tumultuous year 2020 hurled at us. Today’s podcast examines why MIPS is such a burden and causes so many different dilemmas in healthcare. We scrutinize how the federal budget, legislation, the growing number of Medicare beneficiaries and growing number of reduced resources are confounding a system already in disarray. We address the common -that it would be easier to get rid of a program that causes so much confusion and seems to benefit so few.
Important points of view discussed are:
- The increase in the number of patients eligible for Medicare
- Legislation setting the standards for performance
- The correlation between performance and monetary resources available to eligible clinicians
- Why investing in strong performance in MIPS will be a value in the future
