MIPS vs. MOOPS

This just in:

A congressional agency, MedPAC, recently issued its June report highlighting the need to improve the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track part of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) by reducing administrative burden and increasing the importance of positive patient health outcomes.

Here is the funny part.  Does anyone believe a plan using terms such as “merit based”, “incentive payment” and “quality payment” would ever be able to reduce administrative burden?

No!

Add to this that they still want to INCREASE the importance of positive patient health outcome?

Who thinks up this crap?
