The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have opened the data submission period for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians who participated in the 2020 performance year of the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Data can be submitted and updated until 8:00 PM EDT on March 31, 2021.
How to submit
Clinicians will follow the steps outlined below to submit their data:
- Go to the Quality Payment Program website.
- Sign in using your access credentials (see below for directions).
- Submit your data for the 2020 performance year or review the data reported on your behalf by a third party.
To sign in and submit data, clinicians will need to register in the HCQIS Authorization Roles and Profile (HARP) system. Clinicians who are not sure if they are eligible to participate in QPP can check their final eligibility status using the QPP Participation Status Tool. Clinicians and groups that are opt-in eligible will need to make an election before they can submit data. (No election is required for those who don’t want to participate in MIPS.)
Small, underserved, and rural practice support
