CMS Will Answer Questions about MIPS Submission Feature During Three “Office Hours” Sessions

Deadlines are fast approaching to submit data for the 2017 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance period. The 2017 submission period runs through March 31, 2018 with two exceptions:

1. Groups using the CMS Web Interface have until March 16, 2018 at 8pm ET to submit data.

2. Individual Eligible Clinicians submitting quality data via claims, must submit claims by March 1, 2018.

To help individual eligible clinicians and groups prepare for submission, CMS will be hosting three “Office Hours” sessions over the next several weeks.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
