The OPPA, a district branch of the American Psychiatric Association, is a statewide medical specialty organization whose more than 1,000 physician members specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental illnesses, including substance use disorders.
The APA has released a new guide to help psychiatrists avoid potential financial penalties from Medicare’s new quality performance program, known as the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The MIPS was created in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). It is part of Medicare’s new Quality Payment Program, along with incentives for “Advanced” Alternative Payment Models.
With many feeling overwhelmed by the complexity of Medicare's Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), physicians are asking a key question: Where do I start?
Medscape recently reported, “Medical licensing boards continue to ask about current and past mental health conditions on initial and renewal applications, a practice that creates a major barrier to physicians seeking mental health care,” researchers concluded.
The State Medical Board of Ohio (SMBO) has posted an FAQ guidance document to facilitate compliance with Rule 4731-11-09, Ohio Administrative Code.
