If you are an individual MIPS-eligible clinician in an area affected by the Northern California wildfires, you will automatically receive a neutral MIPS payment adjustment, unless you submit data for any of the MIPS performance categories by the 2017 submission deadline. This policy does not apply to MIPS-eligible clinicians in alternative payment models in 2017. The affected areas are determined by zip code (which include Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, Orange, Nevada, and Yuba counties) and based on information in the Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS).
