2017 MIPS Performance Scores Now Available

Date of Publication February 21, 2018

MIPS eligible clinicians who submitted Quality Performance data for 2017 MIPS via claims may now view their performance score for 2017 Claims Data through the MIPS data submission feature.

If your quality performance data was submitted via claims, you don’t need to take any additional action. Claims-based quality measures are calculated automatically by CMS based on the Quality Data Codes (G-codes) submitted on your 2017 claims. Log in to the QPP website to view the calculated individual measures' scores and category score for Program Year 2017.

Please note, scoring of claims data is subject to change monthly based on the processing of any additional 2017 claims and adjustments up to 90 days after the end of 2017. It is possible that claims or adjustments that were submitted towards the end of 2017 have not yet processed. Please check back after March 31.

If you still have 2017 claims you’d like to submit for the Quality performance category, make sure to submit them now. Claims, which are processed by Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) (including claims adjustments, re-openings, or appeals), must get to the national Medicare claims system data warehouse (National Claims History file) by March 1, 2018 to be analyzed. The MACs can provide you with specific instructions on how to bill.
