Laboratory Question for the Week of December 19, 2022


Are there any QPP Measure additions for pathology in 2023?


Among the victories stakeholders achieved, including work done by CAP, a new measure for pathologists was included within the MIPS program:

  • Mismatch Repair (MMR) or Microsatellite Instability (MSI) Biomarker Testing Status in Colorectal Carcinoma, Endometrial, Gastroesophageal, or Small Bowel Carcinoma.

This measure was included in the Pathology Specialty Measure set. On the advice of comments by the CAP, CMS did not include screening for social determinants of health to the pathology measure set.

This question was answered in an edition of our Laboratory Compliance Manager. For more hot topics relating to laboratory services, please visit our store or call us at 1.800.252.1578, ext. 2.
