HiMS Preparing for MIPS

Over 500,000 clinicians will be eligible to participate in MIPS during the first year.
Here’s what you need to know:

  • There’s a flexible start date for data collection

You Can:

  • Not participate – Receive a -4% payment adjustment
  • Submit one quality measure/improvement activity to avoid the negative adjustment
  • Submit 90 days of data – earn a neutral or small positive payment
  • Submit a full year of data – earn a moderate positive payment adjustment
