Most of our valuable clinicians spend time on the 2020 compliance standards set for MIPS 2020 since the start of the year. Back in 2017 and 2018, not everyone was eligible that were previously included in Medicare quality reporting programs such as PQRS and MU. However, moving forward in 2019, 2020, and so, 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 consultation services. However, 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
