MACRA MIPs/APM Update eNewsletter #24

Will MACRA Improve Physician Reimbursement?
Gail R. Wilensky, Ph.D tracing the journey from Resource based relative value scale (RBRVS) and Sustainable growth rate formula (SGR) to current MIPS portion of MACRA. She concludes with, "The proliferation of quality measures is imposing substantial burdens on clinicians, and many of these measures are regarded as poor proxies for quality or as not reflecting what is important to patients. CMS could work with representatives of private payer organizations, clinicians, and consumers to develop a small set of metrics that better reflect outcomes and that matter to patients. All payers could then be encouraged to use this reduced set of metrics. Practicing physicians need make their views about the MIPS and its alternatives known to their representative medical groups and, if necessary, to their representatives in Congress as well. In the past, practicing clinicians have been woefully bad at making their voices heard. Now is a good time for that to change. (New England Journal of Medicine, April 11, 2018)
