MIPS reporting deadlines are quickly approaching! We have staff and tools available to assist you during the reporting period.
Great Plains Quality Innovation Network offers FREE assistance to all Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians. In addition, we created the MIPS Calculator to assist providers in maximizing their revenue reimbursements. The MIPS Calculator is a robust excel-based, scoring and financial projection estimator based on the CMS 2017 final rule for the MIPS 2019 adjustment year.
The tool is intended to facilitate discussion and create opportunities for strategic planning within a practice or facility as clinicians transition from previous CMS Medicare reimbursement and bonus programs to the currently established Quality Payment Program (QPP). Clinicians are able to use our tool independently, or in conjunction with any of our Great Plains QIN staff, as they begin to navigate the many details of this value-based payment model. Tutorials of how to use the MIPS calculator are found here.
Note: New versions of the MIPS Calculator (based upon the 2018 final rule) are being developed and will be available on our website.
If you are still confused, have questions or would benefit from one-on-one reporting assistance, we can help. The Great Plains QIN has also established a Quality Payment Program (QPP) Service Center. Our subject matter experts are available to assist in answering your questions, provide technical assistance and support for reporting your measures and activities. As an added bonus, by partnering with Great Plains Quality Innovation Network, you can earn points on your Improvement Activities Category. Don’t hesitate to call us to set up an appointment.
