Update on MIPS Adjustment Error: No Provider Action Required, CMS Correcting Issue
In late January, ASCO notified members that some oncology practices and providers in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) received inaccurate 2019 payment adjustments as a result of Medicare Part B drug costs incorrectly being included in the adjustments. CMS is now working to correct the payments.
ASCO is in contact with the agency and will keep members informed as a solution is implemented. No action is required from MIPS participants at this time. Interested providers can review CMS’ fact sheet outlining 2019 MIPS payment adjustments.
