CMS Releases Proposed Rule for Performance Year 2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently released proposed policies for the 2020 PY of the Quality Payment Program.

Key Proposals Include:

  • Increasing the Performance Threshold to 45 points
  • Reducing the Quality performance Category weight to 40 percent
  • Increasing the Cost performance Category weight to 20 percent
  • Increasing the Completeness Threshold for quality data submitted
  • Increasing the threshold for groups reporting an Improvement Activity

MIPS Value Pathways:

CMS is also proposing a new way to participate in MIPS, called the MIPS Value Pathways. Beginning PY 2021, MVPs will encourage the transition to APMs & simplify reporting by requiring ECs to report a smaller set of specialty-specific measures.
