  • MIPS 2023—MVPs Versus Traditional MIPS

    This content is excerpted from “MIPS 2023, Part 1” (EyeNet, January 2023). EyeNet’s MIPS content, including its MIPS 2023 supplement, is being published online ahead of print as it becomes available.

    New for 2023, clinicians can participate in a MIPS value pathway (MVP) instead of reporting “traditional MIPS.” They will need to register as a MVP participant, with registration opening on April 3 and closing on Nov. 30. 

    Introducing MVPs. An MVP typically zeroes in on a particular medical con­dition, specialty, or patient population, though the Promoting Wellness MVP is more wide-ranging. Each MVP includes quality measures, improvement activ­ities, and cost measures that support the pathway’s focus, and all MVPs share a common set of promoting interoperability (PI) measures.

    Subgroup reporting for MVPs. When a practice’s clinicians register for MVP reporting, they also can register to report as subgroups, which would allow clinicians from different specialties to report different MVPs. Subgroup reporting is optional this year.

    No ophthalmic MVPs. There are 12 MVPs for 2023, but none of them has an ophthalmic focus. CMS plans to add additional MVPs in future performance years and hopes to shift MIPS’ focus from traditional MIPS to MVPs.
