The Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) has released Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance feedback and final scores for performance year 2020 and associated MIPS payment adjustment information for payment year 2022.
Oncology practices and individual clinicians can now view MIPS performance feedback, final scores, and 2022 payment adjustment on the Quality Payment Program website.
The 2020 MIPS final scores available on the Quality Payment Program website reflect COVID-19 flexibilities implemented by CMS in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, CMS has applied the MIPS automatic extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy to all individual MIPS eligible clinicians for the 2020 performance period and reopened the 2020 Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Exception application to allow requests for reweighting of the MIPS performance categories to 0% for groups, virtual groups and Alternative Payment Model (APM) Entities.
Contact the CMS Quality Payment Program with any questions at 1-866-288-8292 or by e-mail at: QPP@cms.hhs.gov.
