Reminder: Changes to Low-Volume Threshold
As a reminder, we changed the eligibility threshold for 2018. Clinicians and groups are now excluded from MIPS if they:
- Billed $90,000 or less in Medicare Part B allowed charges for covered professional services under the Physician Fee Schedule (PFS)
- Furnished covered professional services under the PFS to 200 or fewer Medicare Part B -enrolled beneficiaries
This means that to be included in MIPS for the 2018 performance period you need to have billed more than $90,000 in Medicare Part B allowed charges for covered professional services under the PFS AND furnished covered professional services under the PFS to more than 200 Medicare Part B enrolled beneficiaries.
