Does a non-patient facing provider need to report the ACI MIPS component?

Non-patient facing MIPS eligible clinicians will have their ACI category automatically reweighted to zero by CMS.

From 2017 MIPS rules (page 77241):

"We proposed to automatically reweight the advancing care information performance category to zero for a MIPS eligible clinician who is classified as a non-patient facing MIPS eligible clinician (based on the number of patient-facing encounters billed during a performance period) without requiring an application to be submitted by the MIPS eligible clinician."

"Under the MIPS, we proposed to automatically reweight the advancing care information performance category to zero for any hospital-based MIPS eligible clinicians and/or nonpatient facing MIPS eligible clinicians who may not have sufficient measures applicable and available to them."
