1. Knowledge on 2018 Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) 2. Orthopaedic requirements for MIPS 3. Tips and Tricks for participating successfully in MIPS 4 Quality Payment Program The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) MIPS Advanced APMs Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Advanced Alternative Payment
Models (Advanced APM) Performance-based payment adjustment Incentive payment for sufficiently participating in an innovative payment model 5 2018 Year 2 MIPS Eligible Clinicians Low-volume threshold for 2018 Year 2 changes to INCLUDE MIPS eligible clinicians billing more than $90,000 a year in Medicare Part B allowed charges AND providing care for more than 200 Medicare patients a year.
2017 Bill > $30,000 Medicare Part B AND Provide care to > 100 beneficiaries 2018 Year 1 Year 2 Bill > $90,000 to Medicare Part B Provide care to > 200 beneficiaries
AND *Voluntary reporting remains an option for clinicians exempt from MIPS 6 QPP Eligibility Look Up Results Participation Status Tool Source: https://qpp.cms.gov/participation-lookup 7 2018 Reporting Options
Clinicians participating as a group are assessed as a group across all four MIPS performance categories. The same is true for clinicians participating as a Virtual Group.

Earn up to 60 Quality Category points Scored on the highest six quality measures from 277 measures May pick from specialty set Must include at least one outcome or high priority measure Earn three to 10 category points for measures with benchmarks Earn up to seven points for six measures - if topped out* two or more years* Must meet data completeness criteria (2018 increased to 60 percent) 2018 Earn one point for reporting if data completeness not met Small practices still earn three points Bonus points for reporting end to end electronically (electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM)) Bonus points for reporting additional outcome or high priority measures *Topped out measures have little room for improvement 11 Examples of Orthopedic
Quality Measures Closing the referral loop Documentation of current medications in the medical record Functional status assessment for total knee replacement Body Mass Index (BMI) screening and follow up plan Pain assessment and follow up 12 Cost: 10 percent of MIPS Score in 2018 Category Performance Score included in composite MIPS score starting in 2018 TWO measure scores are averaged (or any one available)
1.Medicare Spending per Beneficiary (MSPB) 2.Total per capita cost measures Category score weight will increase to 30 percent by 2021 No data submission required; Calculated from administrative claims if meet case minimum of attributed patients Benchmark calculated using current year performance New: Scoring Improvement Bonus up to one percentage point Based on statistically significant changes at the measure level 13 Improvement Activities: 15 percent of MIPS Score 2017-2018 Maximum Category score 40 points Help participants prepare to transition to APMs and Medical Home Models. Additional activities available in 2018, some
changed Engage in up to four activities for at least 90 days Medium activity = 10 points High activity = 20 points Earn PI category Bonus points for using CEHRT for some IA Report by simple Yes/No attestation Special Scoring: Double points: clinicians in small underserved or rural settings, and non-patient facing clinicians/groups 14 Possible Improvement Activities in Orthopedics Annual registration in the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Anticoagulant Management Improvements i.e.: Patients being managed by an anticoagulant management service
Consultation of the PDMP Implementation of use of specialty report back to referring clinician or group to close the referral loop 15 Promoting Interoperability: 25 percent of MIPS Score in 2018 Maximum Category score 100 of 155 possible points Earn up to 25 MIPS points 2018: May use either 2014 or 2015 Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) (or combination) 10 percent bonus for using only 2015 CERHT Base measures, required for any score in this category Earn 50 points Four base measures for 2014 CEHRT, five for 2015 CEHRT; some
measures also earn performance scores Exclusions available for two base measures: e-Prescribing and Health Information Exchange: Send Summary of Care Performance measures Optional Earn up to 90 points Seven for 2014 CEHRT, nine for 2015 CEHRT 16 2014 vs 2015 Certified EHR Four Base Measures = 50 points Seven Performance Measures Five Base Measures = 50 points Nine Performance Measures Earn up to 10 points each Two worth 20 points each

17 Reporting Scenarios of Orthopaedics 18 Scenario One Background Solo Practice Surgeon Eligible Clinician (exceeds low volume threshold) Must report to avoid a negative penalty Does not utilize an EHR
Reporting Options Needs to obtain 15 MIPS Points to remain Neutral Could attest to Improvement Activities Report Quality Category via claims or registry Note: Practices with 15 or less clinicians get some special scoring 19 Solo Surgeon Reporting with No EHR
Clinician decides that she does not want to pay for a registry and go through the trouble of doing chart reviews to populate the registry Finds out that billers have been submitting some G Codes for Medication Reconciliation and Body Mass Index Screening but they did not meet the 60 percent data completeness for quality Attests to using the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) 20
Score for this Solo Clinician One Improvement Activity Two Quality Measures Five free points for being a small practice Small Practices receive double points for Improvement Activities and a Source: Stratis Health MIPS Estimator minimum of three points for quality measures https://www.mipsestimator.org/
21 Scenario Two Background Orthopaedics Group Practice with 16 Eligible Clinician Types Has EHR through the local hospital Two of the clinicians exceed the low Volume Threshold The remaining 14 are eligible at the group level but not individually Reporting Options
Group Reporting Individual Reports (2 mandatory and 14 voluntary) 22 Scores for Mandatory Clinicians William White Patricia White Source: Stratis Health MIPS Estimator https://www.mipsestimator.org/ 23 Group Score Source: Stratis Health MIPS Estimator https://www.mipsestimator.org/
24 Group versus Individual Reports Individual Report The individual clinicians will receive a payment adjustment Group report All eligible clinician types in the group will receive a payment adjustment In this example, the group score was greater than either of the mandatory reporters so if a group report was submitted, they would receive the higher of the two scores. 25 Important Information About the Scenarios
Did not give any points for cost or complex patient bonus The scores were calculated based on the most current benchmarks (some benchmarks will be recalculated during the performance year) 26 Resources Stratis Health MIPS Estimator https://www.mipsestimator.org/ Quality Payment Program Website: https://qpp.cms.gov/ 27 Questions?
