QPP Burden Study Volunteers to Receive MIPS Credit

Physicians who participate in an upcoming study of possible burdens from Medicare quality measure reporting will earn a special bonus from the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS). They will be awarded full credit for the 2018 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Improvement Activities (IA) performance category.

The study will gather information about challenges eligible clinicians encounter when collecting and reporting quality data.

MIPS-eligible clinicians, who participate in MIPS either as an individual or as part of a group, are eligible to apply. For details on the successful completion of this study and the requirements for earning the full IA credit can be found on the CMS website.

Applications for the study will be accepted through March 23, 2018. For more information, direct your inquiries to
