The CMS has discovered it made a mistake processing quality scores for doctors participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System under MACRA. The error may have resulted in underpayment to about 621,700 providers.
CMS made error when calculating MIPS payments
Providers participating in MIPS were granted the option to request a targeted review by the CMS. That meant an agency staffer would go over reports to make sure a practice didn't make a mistake while submitting data or that the CMS hadn't made a mistake when processing the data.
It was during these reviews that the agency discovered something was wrong.
