MIPS data collection alert

It’s not too late to participate in the first year of MIPS and avoid a negative 4% payment adjustment.

It’s not too late to participate in the first year of MIPS and avoid a negative 4% payment adjustment.

You can participate in one of three ways:
• Submit data covering a full year, or
• Submit data covering at least a consecutive 90-day period, or
• Submit a minimum amount of data (<90 days)

Data collection must begin no later than October 2, 2017, in order to report 90 consecutive days for the transition year.  Submissions will be accepted through March 2018.

Additional benefits:
•  If you submit data for at least 90 days, you avoid the negative payment adjustment, and may be eligible for a positive payment adjustment.

•  Submitting more data increases your likelihood of earning a positive payment adjustment.
