MIPS requirement

If you are having significant difficulties meeting MIPS requirements due to COVID-19, here’s some good news!

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently implemented 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. 

The deadline to submit your application has been extended to Feb. 1, 2021.

Submit your application here and be sure to cite COVID-19 as the reason for your application.

Learn more with CMS’ Fact Sheet.  

If you have questions, please contact the ISMS Health Policy Research and Advocacy team by email.
