MIPS Reporting Deadline Fast Approaching

Date of Publication February 9, 2018

Deadlines are fast approaching if you plan to submit data for the 2017 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance period. Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your data. Submit early and often.

The two key dates are:
March 16 at 7 pm CST for group reporting via the CMS web interface.
March 31 for all other MIPS reporting, including via qpp.cms.gov.

If you’re not sure if you are required to report for MIPS, enter your National Provider Identifier (NPI) in the MIPS Lookup Tool to find out whether you need to report. Additionally, if you know you are in a MIPS APM or Advanced APM, you can use the APM Lookup Tool.

If you are in an ACO or other APM, make sure you are working with your ACO or APM to make sure they have any patient information they need to report. Remember you need to report on Advancing Care Information measures on your own.

If you have questions about your participation status or MIPS data submission contact the Quality Payment Program Service Center via email or call (866) 288-8292 [TTY: (877) 715-6222].
