Nearly all eligible clinicians avoiding a MIPS penalty earned a positive adjustment, with a higher portion also receiving special scoring for MIPS APM participation, CMS reports.
About 98 percent of eligible clinicians avoided a penalty under the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) in 2018, and almost all of these clinicians earned a positive payment adjustment, CMS recently reported.
The federal agency released the 2018 Quality Payment Program Experience Report on Tuesday, revealing MIPS participation, scoring, and payment data for the program’s second performance year.
The report showed that an overwhelming majority of clinicians eligible to participate in MIPS in 2018 did so despite changes that decreased the number of eligible clinicians that year, such as new low volume thresholds.
