The application period is now open for physicians to participate in a new Medicare Advantage (MA) demonstration as alternative to participation in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The Medicare Advantage Qualifying Incentive Arrangement (MAQI) Demonstration allows physicians in certain risk-based contracts with MA plans (those similar to Advanced APMs) to apply to participate. Those determined to meet MAQI qualifications may receive a waiver exempting them from reporting MIPS data. Click here for additional information. Applications are due by September 6.
