Eligible clinicians billing Medicare Part B have until March 31, 2018 to submit to new quality reporting structures within MACRA’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2017 performance year.

Overall MIPS scoring consists of:
- Quality – 60%
- Cost – not scored for 2017 reporting
- Improvement Activities – 25%
- Advancing Care Information – 15%
