The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) officially opened the data submission period for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) on Jan. 2 for eligible clinicians who participated in Year 2 of the Quality Payment Program.
However, the following two exceptions for data submission should be noted:
- Participants who use the CMS web interface are required to report quality data between Jan. 22 and March 22, 2019.
- Data for clinicians who report quality measures using Medicare Part B claims throughout the performance year will be received from claims processed by the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC)
Note: All claims for services provided during 2018 must be processed within 60 days after the end of the 2018 performance period.
