The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reminds clinicians of important upcoming Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) dates and deadlines in 2022.
In December 2022, MIPS eligibility for the 2022 performance year will be finalized after the release of the August 31 Alternative Payment Models (APM) snapshot data Qualifying Participant (QP) determinations. MIPS APM participation information will be available on the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Participation Status Tool, and initial eligibility to participate in MIPS for the 2023 performance year will also be released on the APP Participation Status Tool.
December 31 is the last day of the 2022 performance year, after which clinicians will no longer be able to collect data for the year. QPP Exception Application window closes at 8:00 PM ET for MIPS eligible clinicians participating in traditional MIPS or the APM Performance Pathway (APP) who want to submit a MIPS Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Exception (EUC) or the MIPS Promoting Interoperability Performance Category Hardship Exception application for the 2022 performance year.
2023 performance year virtual group election period closes at 11:59 PM ET on December 31, after which prospective applicants will no longer be able to submit, revise, or retract their elections. If there are any changes to the makeup of the virtual group, an official representative must contact the Quality Payment Program regarding these changes by this date as well.
On December 31, the CMS Web Interface sunsets as a collection and submission type for non-Shared Savings Program ACOs, registered groups, virtual groups, and APM Entities reporting traditional MIPS. The CMS Web Interface will continue to be an option for Shared Savings Program ACOs reporting via the APP through the 2024 performance year.
