Patient assessment of medical providers has been added as an option to two sections of MIPS in the current Medicare QPP. It is the Clinicians & Groups (CG) Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Systems (CAHPS) survey which can affect reimbursement.
Other than QPP all providers should consider having this survey done as soon as feasible to find and correct communication problem areas before CAHPS is required for all reimbursement. For more information Contact Us.
