  • MIPS 2022—What’s New With Cost

    Excerpted from “MIPS—What’s New for 2022, Part 1: Scoring, Bonuses, and Penalties” (EyeNet, January 2022). Also see, EyeNet’s MIPS Manual 2022: A Primer and Reference.

    The cost performance category is largely unchanged. As in 2021, the cost measure that is most likely to apply to ophthalmologists is the measure for routine cataract surgery.

    Five new episode-based measures. For 2022, CMS added five episode-based measures:

    • two procedural measures (one on melanoma resection, the other on colon and rectal resection);
    • one acute inpatient measure (sepsis); and
    • two chronic condition measures (one on diabetes, the other on asthma/ chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
