CMS alerts clinicians of MIPS participation status

Medicare Administrative Contractors are notifying medical practices which clinicians must take part in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System, one of two payment pathways for clinicians under the Medicare and CHIP Reauthorization Act.

Clinicians should participate in MIPS for the 2017 transition year if they bill more than $30,000 in Medicare Part B allowed charges and provide care to more than 100 Medicare Part B beneficiaries each year, according to CMS.

Regarding the first year of the MIPS program, CMS said it is committed to working with providers to streamline the process.

CMS is sending out notifications through the end of May.
