Essay: Salvaging the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS): August 28th

This past August 28th, the Health Affairs Blog posted my essay, "Salvaging MIPS."  Followers of this podcast may recall last August I wrote a related essay for Health Affairs concerning the problems with the high MIPS exclusion thresholds.  I certainly does not appear we are making any progress in moving Medicare Part B (physician reimbursement) closer to higher quality and greater value.
