CMS to Notify Clinicians of MIPS Participation Status
Wed, Apr. 26, 2017

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will notify anesthesiologists and other clinicians of their MIPS eligibility beginning in late April through May. Practices will receive letters detailing the participation status of each eligible clinician within a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) or practice. Practices should be aware that the letter will arrive from their Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) that processes their Medicare Part B claims.

Clinicians are considered eligible for participation in MIPS if they have more than 100 Medicare patients per year and bill more than $30,000 in Medicare Part B allowed charges. MIPS eligibility is based on Medicare Part B claims from previous years.

Clinicians will receive notification of their patient-facing and hospital-based status from CMS at a later date.
