This post is part of the MACRA Monday series of blog posts where we dive into the details of the MACRA Quality Payment Program.

If you aren’t sure about your eligibility for MACRA (Quality Payment Program if you prefer), then check out CMS’ new tool which will help you see if you can participate in MIPS. In fact, you can check if anyone is eligible to participate in MIPS if you know their NPI number (which is easily available with a search on Google). Here’s the output I got for a provider that I looked up:
Pretty straight forward. This doctor can participate in MIPS as an individual or with his group. It would be really nice if this screen also informed the doctor about the penalties and bonuses they could receive depending on how they choose to approach MIPS. However, I guess they would have to be careful about how specific they were with that data since anyone can search any provider. However, even some generic details on the penalties and/or incentives would be a smart addition to this screen. The “What Can I Do Now?” button does lead to some more information, but it’s not very compelling.
I liked this friendly reminder from @JournalofCP:
