Find Out if You Need to Participate in MIPS

Members & Publications

May 5, 2017

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has launched a tool to look up if you need to participate in MIPS. 

To check if you need to submit data to MIPS, enter your 10-digit National Provider Identifier (NPI) number.

If you're exempt from MIPS with the first review, you won't need to do anything else for MIPS this year. If you are included in MIPS, you may be exempt with the second review of eligibility determinations at the end of 2017. Learn more about MIPS eligibility.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
