The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is a program through which participating providers are evaluated and rewarded for improvement based on their performance in four categories. Performance is measured through data reported in four areas:

  1. Quality – 45%
  2. Promoting Interoperability – 25%
  3. Cost – 15%
  4. Improvement Activities – 15%

The weighted scores in these categories are combined to determine the comprehensive assessment score. Participating providers can submit data for the 2018 performance year until April 2, 2019, at 8:00 p.m.

The MIPS performance period for 2019 is from January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2019. Data must be collected for the full year for the Cost and Quality categories. For the Improvement Activities and Promoting Interoperability categories, data must be collected for at least a consecutive 90-day period.

Data for 2019 should be submitted to MIPS by the March 31, 2020, deadline to receive a positive, negative, or neutral payment adjustment in 2021.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released videos to help MIPS participants with the process. The videos are intended to ease the burden of enrolling and participating in the program and cover a range of topics. Topics include how to register and set up a Quality Payment Program (QPP) account, how to add and approve authorized users for your practice, and how to connect your account to a group practice. Additional videos are available that show step-by-step instructions for how to view, submit, and manage your practice’s data.
