Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health clinics are tasked with providing care to under-served, at-risk patients, and those in rural areas who have limited access to healthcare. What an awesome charge, to be tasked with improving the health and well-being of those who may not otherwise have access to care. The question often comes up for these organizations: how does MIPS apply to FQHC and RHC practices and clinicians?
FQHCs and RHCs providing services to Medicare patients generally bill for facility charges within the Medicare Part A all-inclusive rate. However, FQHCs and RHCs billing for Medicare Part B Services rendered under the Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) could find that they are eligible for MIPS payment adjustments. Those who are not aware that they are required to report for MIPS may be subject to negative payment adjustments for failure to adhere to CMS guidelines for the Quality Payment Program.
Our Kentucky REC team of expert advisors will share important information for understanding FQHC and RHC provider eligibility in the QPP for the 2023 performance year. We will explore regulatory requirements for CMS’s Quality Payment Program, how to determine organization eligibility, and next steps for eligible clinicians and practices.
