3. Who am I going to be compared to?

  1. Your performance will be compared to CMS’s defined list of “eligible clinicians” who are subject to participation in the MIPS program, regardless of specialty. To be eligible to receive a positive payment adjustment, you must exceed the minimum performance threshold set by CMS for each performance year (for 2020 the performance threshold is 45 points). Once you exceed the performance threshold, the specific percent amount of the payment adjustment that will be applied to your Medicare Part B FFS claims two years later in the payment adjustment year (i.e., 2022 payment adjustment year based on 2020 performance) will depend on how you performed in comparison to your peers. Additionally, there must be budget neutrality, so the total amount of positive payment adjustments must be equal to the total amount of the negative payment adjustments.
