Since 2020 has begun, some of our valuable clinician time must be spent over 2020 compliance standards set for MIPS 2020. Back in 2017 and 2018, not everyone was eligible that were previously included in Medicare quality reporting programs such as PQRS and MU.
Moving forward in 2019, and, now in 2020, the pool of eligible clinicians expanded to contain some of the previously ignored specialties. Such specialties include Physical/Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists, Audiologists, Dietitians/Nutritionists and Clinical Psychologists.
So, if you are any of the above or come from another field, you can make use of our MIPS consulting services. Staring in 2019, the otherwise eligible clinicians, clinician groups, APM entities can choose to opt-in to MIPS if they are above 1 or 2, but not all, provisions of the low-volume threshold
It means that even if you exceed one of the low-volume thresholds, you can participate in MACRA MIPS as a newly eligible clinician and earn a positive payment adjustment.
