Registration Now Open for CMS Web Interface and CAHPS for MIPS Survey Reporting for 2019

4/5/2019

Groups and Virtual Groups Must Register by July 1, 2019 to Use the CMS Web Interface and/or Administer the CAHPS for MIPS Survey

Registration is required for groups and virtual 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 2019.
  • Groups and virtual groups must have 25 or more clinicians (including at least one MIPS eligible clinician) to register for the CMS Web Interface.
  • Groups and virtual groups with 2 or more clinicians (including at least one MIPS eligible clinician) can register for the CAHPS for MIPS Survey.
To register, please log in to the Quality Payment Program website. The registration period opened on April 4, 2019 at 10:00am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) and closes on July 1, 2019 at 5:00pm EDT. Refer to the 2019 Registration Guide for the CMS Web Interface and CAHPS for MIPS Survey for step-by-step instructions. As a reminder, you will need a QPP account and the Security Official role for your group or virtual group (see below for further information).

Groups and virtual groups planning to collect and submit 2019 MIPS quality data in other ways  – for example, submitting MIPS Clinical Quality Measures through a Qualified Registry – and that are not planning to administer the CAHPS for MIPS survey do not need to register.

Please note, if your group reported quality data for the MIPS 2018 performance period via the CMS Web Interface, CMS automatically registered your group to report quality data via the CMS Web Interface for the 2019 performance period. 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.

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.

Don’t have a QPP account and/or Security Official role? Start the process now. Refer to the QPP Access User Guide and this video for step-by-step instructions.
