2021 MIPS: What You Need to Know to Avoid a Penalty
Wednesday, March 3 at 6 pm (CT)
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updates the Quality Payment Program annually via the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule rule. Eligible clinicians either report using an Alternative Payment Model or the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Most physiatrists will be reporting under MIPS, which will impact their future Medicare reimbursements.
AAPM&R will host a MIPS webinar on Wednesday, March 3 at 6 pm (CT) to review the new 2021 reporting requirements and explain how you can improve your score within each of the four performance categories:
- Improvement Activities
- Promoting Interoperability
Positive or negative payment adjustments based on a provider’s performance score will be a maximum 9% for the 2021 performance year and 2023 payments.
We’ll go over how to identify appropriate quality measures and improvement activities for your physiatry practice and share strategies to monitor costs and meet promoting interoperability components.
Register today to join us on March 3.

AAPM&R Advocacy: Advancing PM&R on Capitol Hill and Beyond
Thursday, March 4, at 7 pm (CT)
Register today to join us for a webinar hosted by AAPM&R's advocacy committees on March 4. All members are welcome.
We will go over the political highlights of the 2020 election and how it will affect AAPM&R’s state and federal advocacy goals in 2021. This session will also highlight some of the most important issues from 2020, their successes and what is still needed. Such issues include physician reimbursement, scope of practice issues, reducing physiatry burden and practice management during the public health emergency.
The advocacy committees look forward to receiving input from AAPM&R membership during this session on our ongoing and upcoming advocacy priorities, including physician reimbursement, telehealth, scope of practice, COVID-19 and post-acute COVID syndrome, social determinants of health and Medicaid expansion.
