This CY 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule discusses several updates to the Meritbased Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for performance year 2020 and beyond. The comment period for this rule closes September 27, 2019.
As confirmed in the last year’s Medicare Physician Fee Schedule final rule, physical therapists (PTs), occupational therapists (OTs), speech-language pathologists (SLPs), clinical psychologists, dietitians, and audiologists were added as eligible clinicians for the 2019 MIPS performance year (i.e., the 2021 payment year). PT, OT, and SLP eligibility for participation in MIPS continues into the 2020 performance year (i.e., the 2022 payment year).
