The Quality Payment Program (QPP) Participation Status Tool allows clinicians to view their eligibility status for both the Merit-based Incentive Payment Program (MIPS) and the Alternative Payment Model (APM) program. Clinicians can enter their individual National Provider Identifier (NPI) into the tool to learn if they are required to report MIPS by performance year or if they are a Qualifying APM Participant (QP) or Partial QP. CMS recently updated the tool with information about clinicians’ APM status and is expected to update MIPS eligibility in November. MIPS eligible clinicians who do not report MIPS this year will receive an automatic 7% penalty on their Medicare Part B payments in 2021, so it is important to understand what their eligibility status means so they can protect their Medicare reimbursement.
