Helping you put the MIPS pieces together each week!
It’s not too late to finish strong with MIPS reporting in 2017!
In this week’s MACRA Minute, we want to point out a few measures that no longer have an exemption available for 2017 reporting!
In the 2017 Advancing Care Information (ACI) Transition Objectives and Measures category:
- Objective 6 – Health Information Exchange
- There is no longer an exemption. In previous years, if there were less than 100 during the reporting period you could exempt this measure.
- Objective 7 – Medication Reconciliation
- There is no longer an exemption. In previous years, most family practice providers were able to exempt this objective because they had little to no referrals to their practice but with MIPS that exemption no longer exists and you must have at least one referral during the 2017 reporting period.
