CMS Update: Recheck Your Final 2019 MIPS Eligibility Status
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) recently discovered and corrected inconsistencies in the data after releasing final 2019 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligibility data. If you checked your eligibility following the December 4th listserv announcing final MIPS eligibility, your status may have been affected by the data inconsistencies. CMS encourages you to use the QPP Participation Status Tool to re-check and confirm your final 2019 MIPS eligibility. If you haven’t checked your final MIPS eligibility yet, you should do so now to understand your participation requirements for the 2019 performance period. The 2019 MIPS data submission period opened on January 2, 2020 at 10 AM ET.
Below are helpful resources to review when checking your final 2019 MIPS eligibility:
