Proposed changes in Medicare reimbursement

Share this:


Physicians Practice reports:

“CMS has proposed several new changes that can significantly affect physicians, clinicians, and their Medicare reimbursement. CMS reported from data collected in 2017 that 91 percent of physicians and clinicians who had to participate in MIPS did.

“This 2019 proposed rule for The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA)/Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2019 performance period makes it more difficult in some aspects for physicians and clinicians to comply, while other changes are actually going to make it easier. For example, those individuals, groups, or virtual groups that do not fully understand these potential changes—and prepare for them—can lose as much as 7 percent of their Medicare reimbursement in 2021, a reduction that could crush most medical practices.”
