MIPS Deadline Fast Approaching
June 30 is the last day clinician groups can register to use the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Web Interface to submit their Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) data and/or administer the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) for MIPS survey for the 2018 performance period.
To register, visit the Quality Payment Program website. A valid Enterprise Identity Data Management (EIDM) account is required.
Groups that registered to use the CMS Web Interface in 2017 do not need to register again for 2018. However, groups that wish to edit or cancel their registration for the 2018 performance period, must do so by June 30.
