Mary Smith, nurse practitioner and administrator for the Starkville Orthopedic Clinic in Starkville, spoke at the Association’s Rural Health Clinic Conference in Jackson on April 7, 2017. Mary delivered a presentation regarding the CMS process for submitting quality information for the Quality Payment Program (QPP) using MIPS.
Mary stated that CMS will be sending letters during the month of April to all individual providers who meet the MIPS threshold for reporting. So, if you are a provider, be on the lookout for this letter. If you are an administrator, make sure and notify your providers that this letter is coming. For those designated “rural health,” your providers that submit Medicare Part B may still be eligible for MIPS even if your clinic is exempt for being in the legacy fee-for-service model.
