CMS gives 800,000 docs a pass on MACRA requirement

From Modern Healthcare:

More than 800,000 clinicians will not have to comply with Merit-based Incentive Payment System reporting requirements outlined in MACRA, which may save them millions collectively in compliance costs.

The majority of physician practices were expected to use the Merit-based Incentive Payment System, known as MIPS, to comply with MACRA as opposed to alternative pay models. Under MIPS, payments would be based on a compilation of quality measures and use of electronic health records.

The CMS has now sent letters to 806,879 clinicians saying that they will not be evaluated under MIPS in 2017.
