How will your MIPS score be calculated for the 2018 reporting period? The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published an updated MIPS 2018 scoring guide that explains:

  • What level of data reporting is required in within each performance category
  • How measure scores are calculated based on benchmarks
  • How to earn bonus points in the Quality and Promoting Interoperability performance categories
  • How the complex patient bonus is calculated
  • Special provisions for small practices
  • Which special statues are eligible for re-weighting the Promoting Interoperability performance category to zero
  • What help is available for practices experiencing extreme and uncontrollable circumstances (e.g., hurricanes); and
  • How payment adjustments will be calculated (based on your MIPS Final Score)
