In November, 2018, CMS released the final rule in its Quality Payment Program for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program. With each passing year, CMS pulls providers uphill toward ever-greater risk, with less guarantee of reward. For calendar year 2019, eligible clinicians have been added, points and percentages changed. It’s part of the Affordable Care Act that is unlikely to go away soon.
NJHA Healthcare Business Solutions, an affiliate of the New Jersey Hospital Association, has selected SpectraMedix as its Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) Quality Payment Program (QPP) solution partner for its members. SpectraMedix was selected due to its on-going success in delivering Medicare reporting solutions to hospitals and large providers.
