Ready for MIPS? Changes take effect on January 1st

The decision by the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to include physical therapists (PTs) in its Quality Payment Program (QPP) is huge: not only is it an acknowledgment of the important role PTs can play in the transition to value-based payment; it's an opportunity for the profession to further strengthen its case for physical therapy as a way to reduce costs, improve outcomes, and provide better care.

It's also going to mean some big changes in the ways many PTs get paid for their services, mostly through participation in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), which is a major part of QPP. And the changes are right around the corner, set to take effect on January 1, 2019.

All of which begs the question: are you ready for what's coming? APTA developed a quick quiz to help you find out how much you know about MIPS.

Also, check out APTA's MIPS webpage for extensive resources on this major shift.
