CMS is reviewing claims and letting practices know which clinicians need to take part in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), an important part of the new Quality Payment Program (QPP). In late April through May, clinicians will get a letter from your Medicare Administrative Contractor that processes Medicare Part B claims, providing the participation status of each MIPS clinician associated with your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN).

Clinicians should participate in MIPS in the 2017 transition year if they:
•Bill more than $30,000 in Medicare Part B allowed charges a year and
•Provide care for more than 100 Part B-enrolled Medicare beneficiaries a year
