FAQs: Reg-ent℠ MIPS reporting

June 2017 – Vol. 36, No. 5

How will the Reg-ent registry help my practice with the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) 2017 reporting?

Reg-ent’s enhanced technology platform will accommodate all required 2017 MIPS reporting categories, including Quality Performance, Advancing Care Information (ACI), and Improvement Activities (IA).

By what date must I join Reg-ent to report MIPS 2017?

All practices must have contracts executed by July 15, 2017, to report MIPS 2017 via the Reg-ent registry.

When will Reg-ent submit data to CMS?

Submission of data to CMS will begin upon conclusion of the 2017 performance year from January 1, 2018, through March 31, 2018.

Will I be able to track my performance, scores, and potential payment adjustments?

Yes. Reg-ent participants will be able to view and track their scores in each reporting category within the Reg-ent MIPS dashboard and use a payment adjustment estimator to determine potential payment adjustments. All final payment adjustments are determined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and will be applied in 2019 for the 2017 reporting year.
