Talk Ten Tuesdays
MIPS: Maligned and Misunderstood
April 03, 2018 Erica Remer, MD | Dennis Jones | Lyman Sornberger | Laurie M. Johnson | Larry Field | Stanley Nachimson

Maligned and misunderstood, the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is under assault, as industry experts are urging officials at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to consider repealing the program.
