MIPS Gets Way Harder in 2019

%

Penalty Increase

The penalty for not meeting the minimum requirements of MIPS in 2019 increases to a 7% cut of your Medicare Reimbursements. It was 5% in 2018.

Minimum Score Increase

The minimum required score to avoid the 2019 MIPS penalty doubles to 30 MIPS points. It was only 15 points for MIPS 2018.

More Work

You can no longer beat MIPS by only completing Improvement Activities. You must now also complete another MIPS component -- like Quality measures or Promoting Interoperability measures -- in order to meet the 2019 MIPS minimum requirements and avoid a 7% reduction in Medicare reimbursements.

Must Use a Certified EHR

CMS is requiring all medical providers to use a CEHRT (2015 Certified EHR) in 2019 in order to meet the minimum MIPS requirements and avoid a 7% cut to their Medicare reimbursements. If your EHR isn't certified, we recommend switching to a Wound Care EHR that is certified.
