Relief for Doctors Participating in MIPS During the COVID-19 Era
Posted on: 12/4/2020

Are you having significant difficulties meeting MIPS requirements due to COVID-19?

Not all practices have been affected by COVID-19 to the same extent. That’s why the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is implementing its Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances policy intended for health professionals, groups and virtual groups participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Under the policy, those who have encountered circumstances that were out of their control, such as COVID-19, may apply to re-weight any or all MIPS performance categories. 

Submit your application here by 7 p.m. CST onDec. 31, 2020, and be sure to cite COVID-19 as the reason for your application.
