Scoring the MIPS Quality Category

To understand your potential Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) payment adjustment, you’ll want to be familiar with the essential elements of the scoring methodology. If you choose to fully participate in the Quality Payment Program (QPP) under the MIPS payment model, you’ll be reporting on a minimum of six quality measures for the entire year. Each quality measure percentage is converted to a decile which then corresponds to a range of possible points.
