QPP & MIPS

Under the final Quality Payment Program (QPP) rule for 2019, announced that audiologists will be considered “eligible clinicians” for QPP participation, effective January 1, 2019.  The most feasible pathway for reporting by audiologists is the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The Academy’s MIPS Q&A section offers guidance to members.

Compliance

The Academy offers a wealth of resources to ensure audiologists and audiology practices maintain compliance with applicable federal regulations and are aware of new regulatory requirements as that information becomes available.
