Register Now for MIPS Group Web Interface and CAHPS for MIPS Survey Reporting for 2018

4/2/2018

Groups Must Register to Use the CMS Web Interface and/or CAHPS for MIPS Survey by June 30, 2018

Registration is required for groups that intend to use the CMS Web Interface and/or administer the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) survey for 2018. To register, please visit the Quality Payment Program website. The registration period is from April 1, 2018 through June 30, 2018.

Please note, if your group was registered to participate in MIPS in 2017 via the CMS Web Interface, CMS automatically registered your group for 2018 CMS Web Interface participation. You may edit or cancel your registration at any time during the registration period. Automatic registration does not apply to the CAHPS for MIPS survey.

Group Participation in CMS Web Interface and CAHPS for MIPS Survey

Under MIPS, a group is defined as a single Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) with two or more eligible clinicians (including at least one MIPS eligible clinician), as identified by their National Provider Identifiers (NPI), who have reassigned their billing rights to the TIN. Eligible clinicians who participate as a group will be assessed at a group level across all four MIPS performance categories. The group will receive one payment adjustment for the group’s performance.

Note: Groups that participate in a Shared Savings Program ACO are not required to register or report; the Shared Savings Program ACO is required to report quality measures on behalf of participating eligible clinicians for purposes of MIPS.

For 2018, only groups of 25 or more eligible clinicians that have registered can report via the CMS Web Interface. Groups that participate in MIPS through qualified registry, qualified clinical data registry, or electronic health record (EHR) data submission mechanisms do not need to register. For 2018, only groups of 2 or more eligible clinicians that have registered can participate in the CAHPS for MIPS survey. 

The registration period for groups who choose CMS Web Interface or CAHPS for MIPS Survey as their data submission method is April 1 – June 30, 2018. Registration is not required for any other submission methods.
