The following performance measures and resources apply to all practice types and sizes. Based on your practice size, different scoring may apply.

MIPS performance categories and scoring:

  • Quality: 50% of composite score—replaces Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program
  • Cost: 10% of composite score—replaces value-based modifier (VBM) program
  • Advancing Care Information (ACI): 25% of composite score—replaces Meaningful Use (MU) program
  • Improvement activities (new component): 15% of composite score

Please visit the AMA's Understanding Medicare's Merit-Based Incentive Payment System page for more information about the MIPS program, scoring strategies and bonus point opportunities.
