CMS announces relief for clinicians participating in quality reporting programs
CMS announced it is granting exceptions from reporting requirements and extensions for clinicians and providers participating in Medicare quality reporting programs with respect to upcoming measure reporting and data submission for those programs.
Specifically, CMS is implementing additional extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy exceptions and extensions for upcoming measure reporting and data submission deadlines. The MIPS reporting deadline has been extended from March 31, 2020 to April 30, 2020.
|MIPS eligible clinicians who have not submitted any MIPS data by April 30, 2020 will qualify for the automatic extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy and will receive a neutral payment adjustment for the 2021 MIPS payment year.|
The data submission deadline for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)—eligible clinicians who participated in the 2019 performance period of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) is quickly approaching. Data can be submitted and updated through the QPP web site any time until 8:00 PM ET on April 30, 2020.
Quality measures reported via Medicare Part B claims have been submitted throughout the 2019 performance period. Sign in to qpp.cms.gov for preliminary feedback on Part B claims measure data that have been processed to date.
