MIPS: Opt-In and Voluntary Reporting Policy

MIPS: Opt-In and Voluntary Reporting Policy

CMS has posted a new fact sheet on the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website that discusses the opt-in and voluntary reporting policies and processes for MIPS in 2019.

The decision to opt-in does not carry over from one year to the next. Eligible clinicians will need to make the decision each calendar year. CMS emphasizes that the decision to opt-in is binding and irreversible, so clinicians should carefully “explore the program requirements, measures, and activities” to make sure they can be successful.

Interestingly, CMS is still working on the opt-in and voluntary reporting process for 2019 – so stay tuned.
