Helping you put the MIPS pieces together each week!

Updated Look-up Tool on QPP Website for 2018 MIPS Eligibility

CMS has just released an updated look-up tool on their QPP website that enables clinicians to determine whether
they must participate in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment Program
(MIPS) this year.

Visit www.qpp.cms.gov/participation-lookup and enter the Clinicians’ National Provider Identifier (NPI) number to find out whether they are eligible to participate in MIPS during the 2018 performance year.

Reminder – to reduce the burden on small practices, CMS changed the threshold to exclude clinicians and groups that:

  • Billed $90,000 or less in Medicare Part B allowed charges for covered professional services under the Physician Fee Schedule

OR

  • Furnished covered professional services to 200 or fewer Medicare Part B-enrolled beneficiaries

CMS also stated that the participation lookup tool for Alternative Payment Models (APMs) will be updated at a later time.
