2018 MIPS Playbook

The 2018 MIPS Playbook is AAFP’s new step-by-step guide to navigating the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) path set out under the Quality Payment Program (QPP) of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). It’s a MIPS how-to, simplified.

Learn how to:

  • Select the right reporting method for you
  • Report on quality, improvement activities, and advancing care information (ACI)
  • Get the most from the performance categories in MIPS
  • Build your final MIPS score

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, you should be able to:

  • Identify and summarize how each individual category score contributes to the overall final score
  • Describe the details of what contributes to the individual performance scores for quality, cost, ACI, and IA and how to report for each component
  • Develop strategies to select quality measures and assess cost performance
