MIPS scores from 2017 are now publicly available. Anyone who looks these scores up can now see how well a particular physician/practice did.
What is MIPS? A quick reminder that MIPS stands for "Merit-based Incentive Payment System" - which streamlines into one payment program Medicare Part B providers to a performance-based payment system which were formerly found in three different programs.
If a physician treating Medicare Part B patients did not participate in MIPS, their reimbursements are subject to a decreased rate.
An easy to use publicly available tool to find physician MIPS scores can be found here.
