Medicare for Physical Therapy: The Definitive Guide

In 2016, CMS’s acting administrator, Andy Slavitt, announced the end of MU as we know it: “The Meaningful Use program as it has existed will now be effectively over and replaced with something better,” he said at the JP Morgan Annual Health Care Conference. Instead of continuing MU as a standalone program, CMS is consolidating it—along with PQRS and the Value-Based Payment Modifier (VM) program—into the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). This program will go into effect in 2019, with reporting beginning in 2017. While rehab therapists are considered eligible professionals under MIPS—and its umbrella program, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act—they are not required to participate in MIPS until 2019 at the earliest (although CMS has hinted that there may be opportunities for rehab therapists to voluntarily participate in the meantime). “At its most basic level,” Slavitt said, “[MACRA] is a program that brings pay for value into the mainstream through something called the Merit-based Incentive Program, which compels us to measure [providers] on four categories: quality, cost, the use of technology, and practice improvement.”
