If you decide to participate in traditional Medicare, you may earn a performance-based payment adjustment through MIPS. The majority of providers will participate in MIPS in 2017. You earn a payment adjustment based on practice specific quality data. In 2017, you will see a positive, neutral or negative adjustment ranging from -4% for no participation to +4% for full participation. The size of your payment adjustment will depend both on how much data you submit and your performance results.
CMS has enacted a Pick Your Pace approach to participation. Learn more about Pick Your Pace.
