Which track should providers choose: MIPS or APMs?

For 2017, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and certified registered nurse anesthetists are eligible to participate in MIPS if they bill more than $30,000 to Medicare and provide care to more than 100 Medicare patients per year. If you are an eligible clinician, and you did not register in an Advanced or MIPS APM by June 30, 2016, your only option is MIPS.

If you receive 25 percent of Medicare payments or see 20 percent of your Medicare patients through an Advanced APM in 2017, you will earn a 5 percent incentive payment in 2019.
