MIPS Short-Term Reporting Relief

CMS has adjusted reporting requirements for the Quality Payment Program (QPP) in light of the COVID-19 situation. The 2019 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) data submission has been extended from March 31 to April 30, 2020. Participating clinicians who do not submit data by April 30 will qualify for the “automatic extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy” and receive a neutral payment adjustment for the 2021 payment year. CMS implemented the policy to provide relief to clinicians who are actively responding to COVID-19. PCC commends CMS on the policy and is urging the waiver to be extended into 2020.
