Are you a MIPS Eligible Clinician?

Compared to the current CMS quality initiatives, the pool of eligible clinicians (formerly called eligible providers) will be shrinking significantly for the 2019 performance year. This year (2024) the pool of eligible clinicians has expanded, and the payment adjustment remains at 9%.
