PY2020 Performance Category Reweighting Requests Due to COVID-19 Will Be Accepted Through November 29
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact all clinicians across the United States and territories, and we recognize that not everyone may have been able to submit an Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances (EUC) Exception Application for performance year (PY) 2020 before the March 31, 2021 deadline. As part of our ongoing support for clinicians who are on the front lines of this public health emergency (PHE), CMS is allowing clinicians, groups, virtual groups, and Alternative Payment Model (APM) Entities to request Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance category reweighting for PY 2020 under our EUC policy now through November 29, 2021 at 8 PM ET.
Please review 2020 Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances: Reweighting Requests Extension Guide (PDF) for step-by-step instructions with screenshots.
