What is a partial qualifying participant (QP)?
An eligible clinician who does not meet the exact threshold requirements for qualifying APM but qualifies under the category of slightly reduced threshold limits is a partial QP. The partial QPs are not eligible for the 5% incentive payment under APM. They can, however, choose if they wish to participate in MIPS. If they do not file for MIPs, no payment adjustments are provided to them for that year.
