Act Now or Face MIPS Payment Penalty in 2019

The American College of Radiology urges members to register for Medicare’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) this year to avoid a payment penalty in 2019.

To simplify participation, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) now allows you to comply by reporting of just one patient and one measure by December 31, 2017. Otherwise, you are very likely subject to a negative four percent Medicare Part B payment adjustment in 2019.
