What has MACRA replaced?
Medicare Part B Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) and create a new method regarding how Medicare reimburses physicians. CMS made new changes to the Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) and replaced the fee-for-service method with value-based payments under the Quality Payment Program (QPP). The QPP is made up of two major sections: the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs). MIPS will now be the "new norm" for Part B physicians who will only be exempt if they meet certain conditions.
Merit-Based Incentive Payment System.
MIPS (Merit-Based Incentive Payment System)
Combines the existing quality reporting programs (PQRS, Meaningful Use, and the Value-Based Payment Modifier (VM)) and adds a new component to create a new quality reporting system with a single payment adjustment factor. As with other Medicare initiatives, MIPS will be a budget neutral program, meaning successful reporters will earn incentive payments funded by unsuccessful reporters.
