CMS releases preliminary data on 2018 Quality Payment Program participation

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published a blog post and released an infographic to share preliminary participation data for the Quality Payment Program during 2018.

Key findings include:

  • Overall, MIPS participation rates increased between 2017 and 2018 from 95 percent to 98 percent, respectively.
  • Small practices participation increased from 81% in 2017 to almost 90% in 2018.
  • 63 percent of the 916,058 total TINs/NPIs were above the performance threshold; 0.42 percent were at the performance threshold; and 1.95 percent were below the performance threshold.
  • The number of Qualifying Advanced Payment Model Participants (QPs) nearly doubled, from 99,076 clinicians in 2017 to 183,306 in 2018.

2018 MIPS Performance Feedback and Targeted Review

Clinicians who participated in MIPS in 2018 can access their 2018 performance feedback by logging in to the Quality Payment Program website. If you believe an error has been made in your 2018 performance feedback and 2020 MIPS payment adjustment factor(s) calculation, you will have the opportunity to request a targeted review until Sept. 30, 2019.
