In 2017, you can “Pick Your Pace” in MIPS. There are three options available.
To avoid a negative payment adjustment and potentially attain a positive adjustment you can choose
- Test Pace Option (see article on this page),
- Partial Year Option for which you would report on Quality, ACI and Practice Improvement for a 90-day period
- Full Year Option for which you would attest on the same three measure categories as Partial Year but from January 1st through December 31st, 2017.
CMS states that the more data that is submitted to them, the greater opportunity you will have to attain a positive adjustment.
