Now that the 2021 QPP Final Rule has gone into effect, many healthcare organizations are seeking to implement best practices to maximize incentives and minimize penalties. This requires a solid understanding of the new rule, whether you report using the MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System) or the APM (Alternative Payment Model) track.
Medical Advantage’s very own Beth Hickerson, one of the leading healthcare consultants on the 2021 QPP Final Rule, has extensive experience helping clinicians navigate QPP Final Rule regulations to achieve increased return on investment. Listen in as Hickerson discusses some of updates included in the 2021 QPP Final Rule, including changes for MSSP ACOs, the introduction of the APM Performance Pathway (APP), the sunsetting of the APM scoring standard, an increased performance threshold for clinicians reporting MIPS, and much more.
