Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians, groups, and virtual groups may apply to reweight any or all MIPS performance categories if they’ve been affected by extreme and uncontrollable circumstances that impact these categories. Extreme and uncontrollable circumstances are defined as rare events entirely outside of your control and the control of the facility in which you practice (including the public health emergency triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic).

These circumstances would:

  • Cause you to be unable to collect information necessary to submit for a MIPS performance category.
  • Cause you to be unable to submit information that would be used to score a MIPS performance category for an extended period (for example, if you were unable to collect data for the quality performance category for 3 months), and/or;
  • Impact your normal processes, affecting your performance on cost measures and other administrative claims measures.

The application window is now open. Visit the Quality Payment Program website to apply.
