The Complete Guide to the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)

Whether you are just beginning or have been participating in MIPS for years, this information will be helpful for you!

AZCOMP is dedicated to providing you with useful and relevant information relating to your business, not just amidst the current novel Coronavirus pandemic. We recently hosted a webinar where we discussed everything you need to know about the Merit-Based Incentive Payment Systems (MIPS).

With the pandemic, as well as the changes and challenges the healthcare industry has faced in 2020, many practices are left wondering what to do with MIPS. Many of our clients have expressed concern over the risk of receiving a penalty as high as 9%, and others are looking to take advantage of the increased incentives this year. Therefore, it’s important to take a moment to decide where you stand and if any action needs to be taken to meet your MIPS goals. In this webinar, we discuss the options available for eligible providers, and the flexibility CMS has implemented to help providers.

Maggie Delcamp, RN, AZCOMP’s own EHR Specialist and MIPS Consultant, hosted a webinar including:

  • MIPS in a Minute Overview
  • Potential Financial Impact
  • 2019 Finalized Scores are In
  • Minimum Requirements for 2020
