MIPS Summer Series 2019 - Opt-In Options for 2019


What is the Opt-In Option? The Quality Payment Program (QPP) is offering an option to “Opt In” in 2019. A practice or clinician that does not exceed the low-volume threshold is not required to report but could have the choice to opt in to report as an individual or a group. By opting in, the clinician can receive a payment adjustment (positive or negative) on reimbursement for CMS Medicare Part B patients. The clinician can also choose to voluntarily report as an individual or a group, and not receive any payment adjustment, but be eligible to see benchmarking data from peers.

How Do We Find Out If We Can Opt In? Look at your QPP participation status, using your 10-digit National Provider Identifier (NPI) to see if you are required to report by status year. You will see your participation status and if you are eligible to opt in.
