MIPS Gets Harder in 2019
Penalty is bigger
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.
Passing Score is Higher
The minimum required score to avoid the 2019 MIPS penalty doubles to 30 MIPS points. It was only 15 points for MIPS 2018.
It takes 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 an Updated EHR
CMS is requiring all medical providers to use a 2015 Certified EHR (the latest updated standards) in 2019 in order to meet the minimum MIPS requirements and avoid a 7% cut to their Medicare reimbursements. Click here to see if the EHR version you are using is 2015 certified.
