Program Description:

The Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) payment system was a decade-long concern for physicians receiving Medicare reimbursements. Although the U.S. Congress repeatedly implemented "doc fixes" to patch the broken SGR system, it has finally been replaced by the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System or "MIPS." This new system will combine three quality incentive programs for physicians through Physician Quality Reporting System, Value-Based Payment Modifier, and Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records.
However, there are winners and losers under MIPS. Every physician receives a performance score that can either positively or negatively affect reimbursements. If you want to be on the winning side of this new system, please join us for this educational activity to learn in greater detail about MIPS.
