MACRA UPDATE


MedPAC Urges Repealing MIPS


 


The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) is pushing for the immediate repeal and replacement of a Medicare payment system that aims to improve the quality of patient care. To avoid penalties under MACRA, physicians must follow one of two payment tracks: the Merit-based Incentive Payment System, or MIPS, or advanced alternative payment models like accountable care organizations.


 


MedPAC wants to junk MIPS as it feels that it's too much of a burden for physicians and won't push them to truly improve care. "Time is of the essence to develop an alternative for MIPS," said David Glass, principal policy analyst at MedPAC. It "will not achieve the goal of identifying and rewarding high-value clinicians."
