  MIPS Quality Measures (formerly PQRS)  

The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is part of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) that was created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).  It replaced the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) beginning in the performance year 2017.  Quality, which is one category of MIPS, can be reported if an eligible CPT or ICD-10 code is reported for an encounter.
