2017 MIPS REPORTING OPTIONS
For 2017 transition year, CMS is allowing clinicians in MIPS to “Pick Your Pace”. In 2017, eligible clinicians can choose one of four options:
Individual vs Group Reporting
Report as an individual
If you report as an individual, your payment adjustment will be based on your performance.
An individual is defined as a single clinician, identified by a single National Provider Identifier (NPI) number tied to a single Tax Identification Number (TIN).
Report with a group
Each eligible clinician participating in MIPS via a group will receive a payment adjustment based on the group’s performance.
A group is defined as a single Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) with 2 or more eligible clinicians (including at least one MIPS eligible clinician), as identified by their National Provider Identifiers (NPI).
Between April 1 through June 30, 2017, registration is open for groups planning to participate in MIPS via the CMS Web Interface or Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) for MIPS survey. Only these 2 submission options require registration.
