If you have not begun working on MIPS for your practice, you still have time to avoid penalties for 2017 reporting. You can avoid a penalty by following the guidance as shown through the AMA link below. Submitting a measure through claims in this manner must be done by December 31st, 2017.
CMS is continuing to update and change measures and information regarding the MACRA / MIPS program. Information is subject to change and is meant as general guidance only. All questions related to specific situations of providers and practices should be addressed directly to CMS at QPP@cms.hhs.gov or 1-866-288-8292.
The AMA has provided an instructional video on meeting minimum requirements for avoiding a penalty for the 2017 MIPS program. Details of how this method impacts your practice or the ability to also submit for a 90 period and achieve an incentive should be discussed directly with CMS.
