A fall in MIPS score below 75 points can result in up to a 9% penalty.

The QPP has provided a merit-based incentive payment system, in which providers step in to get financial rewards while upgrading the level of care delivery and patient outcomes at the same time. So, after six years of invaluable contributions to providers’ professional reputations and financial prosperity, the time has come to embark on another journey—MIPS 2023. And Avant-Garde has got you covered with its MIPS consulting and reporting services throughout the performance year 2023.

What will MIPS 2023 Bring for You?

The quality payment program is advancing in line with its strategic goals. As a result, several policy adjustments have been made. Through its MIPS reporting program this year, the Centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services will encourage meaningful provider engagement and enhanced care. Therefore, QPP MIPS reporting program pushes the boundaries of healthcare. It asks all qualified clinicians to report on a set of measures that is comparatively more integrated and cohesive. Also, CMS will give comparative feedback to all of its participants with their payment adjustments.

Underlined Objectives for MIPS Reporting in PY 2023

The QPP MIPS performance year 2023 reporting highlights future healthcare benefits. Therefore, the MIPS program implementation has the following objectives to be met:

  • Integrate quality into the care process.
  • Promote health equity by taking strict measures while making improvements in activity decisions.
  • Encourage participation to increase clinical participation.
  • Enhance data and information sharing through improved, comparable feedback.
  • Development of new MVPs.
  • Advancement of Subgroup Participation.

Let Us be your Helping Hand in MIPS 2023 Reporting!

The weighted contribution of the categories in MIPS 2023 has not changed in any way. The maximum negative payment adjustment for the 2022 payment year (2020 performance year) and after will be -9% onwards, according to the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), which was passed in 2015.

  • For the MIPS 2023 performance year, CY 2025 will be the relative payment year.
  • It’s mandatory to score above the low volume threshold (75 points) to retain MIPS eligibility.
  • CMS will assign MIPS final scores to all eligible clinicians after a complete evaluation.

As a qualified MIPS reporting registry, we are here to help you meet MIPS reporting requirements. We empower you to fulfill your duties outstandingly and adhere to the MIPS reporting deadlines and provide dependable MIPS reporting plans for all those providers who request our MIPS consulting services.

We have the 2015 Edition Cures Update Electronic Health Record (EHR)

The American Medical Association (AMA) places a high value on the efficient use of EHR because of its involvement in:

  • Supporting a provider’s practice
  • Optimizing patient care
  • Improving the practice’s efficiency

Get Through MIPS 2023 with Us

When you receive a MIPS consultation from us, there are countless opportunities to exceed the maximum performance threshold in every segment of the MIPS eligibility determination period. We cater to your most secure and compassionate MIPS reporting service throughout and help you achieve a higher MIPS final score, dropping the possibility of a penalty to zero. We work to satisfy the data completeness standards for every category measure with our digital healthcare reporting systems. For example, we can assist you in obtaining MIPS points by doing the following:

  • For each of the six chosen quality measures, we can assist you in reporting at least 70% of the denominator-eligible patients or cases. Additionally, to achieve the highest quality improvement score, we have ways to help you perform better in the quality area. We can also help small practices get six additional bonus points that are solely available to them.
  • We will advise your practice on how to optimize their improvement measures. By reporting high- and medium-weighted actions across a 90-day performance period in the calendar year (CY) 2023, participants will achieve the highest possible score.
  • Avant-Grade can aid you in obtaining the cost-improvement score privilege. Effective cost performance category reporting now receives 1/100 of a percentage point under the MIPS 2023 Cost Category adjustment.

That is just a small illustration of what a MIPS-qualified registry may do to best serve you during the performance year 2023. Contact us to reap the most benefits from MIPS 2023 reporting.
