CMS grants COVID-19 reporting exceptions for QPP

Article

Physicans in the MIPS program get an extended deadline for reporting and a guaranteed neutral payment adjustment for 2021.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that providers and facilities participating in the Quality Payment Program (QPP) will be granted reporting exceptions because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The exceptions are in respect to upcoming measure reporting and data submission.

“In granting these exceptions and extensions, CMS is supporting clinicians fighting Coronavirus on the front lines,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma in a statement. “The Trump administration is cutting bureaucratic red tape so the healthcare delivery system can direct its time and resources toward caring for patients.”

CMS is implementing additional extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy exceptions and extensions for upcoming measure reporting and data submission deadlines for the following CMS provider programs:

MIPS/MSSP-ACOs

  • 2019 date reporting deadline extended from March 31, 2020, to April 30, 2020.

  •  

  • MIPS-eligible clinicians who have not submitted any MIPS data by April 30, 2020, will qualify for the automatic extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy and will receive a neutral payment adjustment for the 2021 MIPS payment year.
