CMS Tool Streamlines Your Ability to Check MIPS Eligibility

Physicians can now use an online tool from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to check your Merit-based Incentive Payment System eligibility. This allows physicians to immediately see if you are required to participate in the Quality Payment Program pathway that affects most ophthalmologists. The Academy recommends that ophthalmologists who work at multiple practices take this step. The tool compares your claims with the thresholds in each practice through which you bill Medicare. It then allows you to see if you are required to participate in MIPS by practice.
