Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)

Recorded Webinar: Merit-Based Incentive Payment System for Physical and Occupational Therapists 

January 30th at 12:00 PM EST

Physical and occupational therapists in private practice who exceed all 3 criteria of the low-volume threshold must participate in MIPS, subject to the payment adjustment of +/-9%. Nonparticipation will result in the full 9% penalty. 

In 2020, PTs and OTs will need to participate in 2 of the 4 MIPS categories, Quality Measures and Improvement Activities.  This course will cover all of the requirements that PTs an OTs must do in order to avoid the penalty and receive the 7% payment increase.
