I understand my choices regarding MIPS and APMs
Only one-fourth of urologists report understanding the choices available to them regarding the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) created under Medicare’s Quality Payment Program.

In general, the concept of value-based health care reimbursement earns poor marks from urologists, with 24% saying it’s a “bad idea that will not succeed” and 61% indicating it’s “a good idea in theory but much harder to execute in practice.”
The State of the Specialty survey, in its twelfth year, examined urologists’ attitudes and experiences concerning topics ranging from the evolving physician reimbursement system to maintenance of certification (MOC), burnout, hospital employment, telemedicine, and the stressors of daily practice. A total of 252 urologists and urology residents responded. (Also see, “How the survey was conducted.")
