Clinicians are encouraged to go to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Participation Status Tool to determine if they are required to report into the Merit-based Incentive Program (MIPS) for 2020. Those excluded from MIPS due to low volumes may be eligible to voluntarily report (‘opt-in eligible’). Check out the 2020 MIPS Opt-In Reporting and Election Process Toolkit for more information and visit the Reporting Options Overview Webpage for next steps. Clinicians concerned about the effect of COVID-19 on their 2020 performance data can submit an application for an extreme and uncontrollable exception until February 1 (extended deadline) and cite COVID-19 as the reason for the application.
