MIPS 2019 Data Submission Period Opens

1/10/2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has opened the data submission period for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians who participated in the 2019 performance period of the Quality Payment Program. Data can be submitted and updated from 10:00 a.m. ET on January 2, 2020 until 8:00 p.m. ET on March 31, 2020.
Please note, the data submission period through the CMS Web Interface for ACOs and pre-registered groups and virtual groups also opened on January 2, 2020 and will close on March 31, 2020. Quality measures reported via Medicare Part B claims have been submitted throughout the 2019 performance period. Sign in to qpp.cms.gov for preliminary feedback on Part B claims measure data processed to date. Feedback will be updated at the end of the submission period with claims processed by the Medicare Administrative Contractor within the 60-day run-out period.  

How to Submit 2019 MIPS Data

Clinicians should follow the steps outlined below to submit data:
  • Go to the Quality Payment Program website
  • Sign in using your QPP access credentials (see below for directions)
  • Submit your MIPS data for the 2019 performance period or review the data reported on your behalf by a third party.

How to Sign In to the Quality Payment Program Data Submission System

To sign in and submit data, clinicians must register in the HCQIS Authorization Roles and Profile (HARP) system. For clinicians who need help enrolling with HARP, please refer to the QPP Access User Guide.

Note: Clinicians who are not sure if they are eligible to participate in the Quality Payment Program can check their final eligibility status using the QPP Participation Status Lookup Tool. Clinicians and groups that are opt-in eligible will need to make an election before they can submit data. (No election is required for those who don’t want to participate in MIPS.)
