If you participated in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) in 2018, you can now view your results. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the performance feedback, final scores, and payment adjustments for 2018 MIPS program participants. CMS reports that 98% of practices were successful in avoiding penalties.
Log in here to view your results. If you are not satisfied, the deadline for a targeted review is September 30, 2019, at 8:00 pm EST. However, CMS encourages practices to call (1-866-288-8293) or email QPP@cms.hhs.gov before submitting a targeted review to determine if there is an issue that has already been detected. If penalized, you'll see 5% deducted from your Medicare reimbursement in 2020.
For more information, download the 2018 Performance Feedback FAQs and the MIPS 2018 Scoring Guide available under the Quality Payment Program's Resource Library. The Library also contains the 2018 Targeted Review Fact Sheet.
