Providers must achieve a total of 40 points from Improvement Activities during a 90-day reporting period. Activities are categorized as medium-weighted [worth 10 points] or high-weighted [worth 20 points].
Providers in groups of 15 or fewer are only required to complete one high-weighted or two medium-weighted activities for full credit [CMS will weigh the improvement activities at double the value for larger practices].
Providers participating in a patient-centered certified medical homes [PCMH] will automatically receive full credit for the Improvement Activities category of MIPS. Providers participating in an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) will automatically receive 50% of the full score.
CMS will assign scores based on providers’ performance or improvement in future years. For 2017, CMS will not score performance – they will only look for attestation that you’re performing the chosen activities.
An organization may choose to submit measure data to CMS as an individual or as a group through any the options below.
