New resources are available to support providers in using a patient portal and understanding changes to Merit-based Incentive Payment System scoring in the 2018 performance year.
Patient Portal Resources
NYC REACH has developed resources to support providers in using the patient portal. The following are now available on the NYC REACH resource library.
New MIPS Cost Performance Category Fact Sheet
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has created a 2018 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Cost Performance Category Fact Sheet.
Eligible clinicians can reference this document to understand Cost category performance measures and scoring in the 2018 performance year. The Cost performance score will now count for 10% of an eligible clinician’s total MIPS score. In performance year 2017, Cost was not counted toward the total MIPS score.
