This just in:
“Physicians have until Dec. 31 to participate in the 2017 Merit-based Incentive Payment System, and can do so by collecting just one quality measure on one patient. Compliance would avoid a 4% negative payment adjustment to Medicare Part B claims in 2019.”
How pathetic is that? One measure on one patient? Yeah, we are really improving medicine with this garbage. The program is so broken that they are now begging docs just to do one more thing and, yet, physicians aren’t doing it. It’s like doctors are just too stuffed and couldn’t even handle one more wafer…..because they can’t!!!
