Has anyone figured out the bare minimum for 2018? It seems to me that we could simply add one of the quality measure codes (such as G8427 for medication review) for 10 patients and be done with it.
My understanding is that we need 15 points for the quality measures category. For most small practices we get 3 points for reporting on a quality measure. We needed only 3 points in 2017, thus one claim with one quality measure was enough.
In 2018, the Quality Measures category is worth 60% of the whole. So if 5 claims (15 points) gets us 60% of the way toward the requirement, it seems that if we report on 10 codes instead of 5, that will be more than enough for not participating in the other categories - ACI and AI.
Does this sound right and/or has anyone verified what the minimum is for 2018.
Thank you much!
