What’s more, you expect the Quality Payment Program when it is already engaging a huge community of healthcare providers. It has provided two main frameworks for the providers along with various core motives. These frameworks are; the Merit-based Incentive Payment System and Advanced Payment Model. Currently, the two frameworks have been aligned side by side for past years. However, we all are familiar that recently CMS has made MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs) available to clinicians for MIPS reporting 2023. Anyhow, the reason why QPP maintains the defined structure of each pathway is its uniqueness of keeping everything well-organized.
Mainly, CMS doesn’t go with the flow rule. Instead, it provides a comprehensive guideline for each pathway proceeding. All clinicians then appear in the different snapshots accordingly. Till the end of the program, all activities during the performance period make the MIPS participant’s final score.
Before any delay, let’s see what we have done in MIPS 2022 and how QPP has arranged the coming event of the MIPS 2022 program for us. Come on, mark the significant dates and events related to MIPS reporting with us in one go!
MIPS 2022 Reporting Program
Though the Performance year 2022 has ended yet a few preceding from the past performance year are still due on the list. Here, you must be clear that sometimes CMS makes little revisions and updates the dates. Anyhow, we have gathered the most updated information. Thus, the MIPS reporting period for PY 2022 is stretched from January 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022. However, the Payment Adjustment Year will be CY 2024.
Highlights of Past Events

|Late Spring/Early Summer 2023||Opening of the MIPS Final Score Preview Period. Clinicians will have the chance to see a preliminary version of their 2022 final MIPS score, which will define their 2024 MIPS payment adjustment, based on the information provided during the 2022 performance period.|
|Late Summer 2023||CMS will finally release performance feedback and payment adjustment data for the 2022 performance period of MIPS reporting. You can get help from P3Care reviewing and evaluating your performance feedback report. Your final MIPS scores and information regarding payment adjustments are included in the performance feedback. Utilizing this information will allow you to maximize your possible Medicare reimbursement for the upcoming reporting year. Once your payment adjustment information is available, the targeted review will start.|
