Reporting for MIPS

The deadline for reporting 2017 MIPS data is April 3, 2018. While non-MIPS eligible clinicians will NOT be subject to scoring or payment adjustments in 2017, they can voluntarily report their quality data using one of the below three options. They will still receive feedback on their performance, but if they are part of an eligible group practice, their performance will not be factored into the group practice’s final score or payment adjustment.
