Individual vs. Group?

Submitting as Individuals vs. Group is completely your choice and is based on whether or not you want certain providers to participate vs. your entire company.

Individual

  • Payment Adjustments are made to each individual NPI/TIN combination.
  • Good option for companies that are looking to test the water with MIPS instead of full participation.

Group

  • Payment Adjustments are made to the full TIN based on an aggregate score of all NPIs submitted under that TIN.

MIPS Wizard & the Point of No Return...

Navigating Through TheraOffice's MIPS Wizard in the .11 Version

  • After downloading the update, you will start to receive a popup at login telling you that you need to run the MIPS wizard.
  • Doing so will require that all other users also download the update.
  • The MIPS wizard must be run by January 1st, but should not be run until you are ready for all users to download the update.
  • NOTE: If you are an on-site customer that is planning on doing claims-based MIPS submission AND you have custom documentation, please contact support.

MIPS Provider Participation

Allows users to include providers in MIPS after they have completed the MIPS configuration wizard.

  • Users will complete the MIPS configuration wizard and then proceed to add their desired providers to the MIPS participation selection screen.
  • Adding providers to this MIPS participation screen will require those providers to report on MIPS measures within TheraOffice for the designated reporting year.

Adding new providers throughout the year is simple.

  • Once you add a new provider into your system, a window will populate asking whether or not that provider will be participating in MIPS.
  • If the new provider is not pariticpating in MIPS, simply select "No". If the new provider is participating, select "Yes" and the MIPS Participation screen will populate.
  • From there, add the new provider that will be participating in MIPS and the system will require them to report MIPS measures for the designated year.
