This article is intended for use in the MIPS reporting for year 2020, and is designed towards assisting you with achieving the Minimum Reporting requirements for MIPS. This will help you avoid the 9% deduction from your Medicare payments for not meeting the minimum requirements.
You will NOT need the the 2015 Certified build of MacPractice in order to achieve minimum reporting.
This path works best if you are:
- A small practice with 15 or fewer providers
- Looking to minimize workflow changes needed to comply
You can check to see if a provider is participating by clicking on this link here, which will take you to CMS's Quality Payment Program (QPP) site. When you check a given NPI on this site, make sure you switch the tab for the 2020 year after searching for the valid NPI.
If you are reporting to MIPS and would like some assistance, please fill out this short questionnaire. This will alert our Government Programs specialist as to your intention to report to MIPS for the 2020 year, and our specialist will contact you at their earliest convenience to assure that you have everything you need.
You'll need to choose Choose  Quality measures from this list. These measures can be previous measures you have used in the past, or new measures as long as the measures chosen fit your practice. We have several reports that track Clinical Quality Measures available in MacPractice. If you need assistance in adding codes tied to those Clinical Quality Measures to your fee schedule, please give MacPractice Support a call. Our Government Programs Specialist will be happy to assist you.
Add these codes to any Medicare Claim form. You should get an N620 code back on the EOB.
You will need to choose either 1 high weighted or 2 medium weighted activities to report on. You can see this list here. You can continue to choose activities you've done before.
You can fill out the Promoting Interoperability Small Practice Application when they become available here.
*If you would like you can fill out this short form and our Government Specialist will call you when they are available.
This requirement is addressed by CMS, as they will make the appropriate calculations determined by your Medicare claim submissions.
