MIPS Eligible Clinicians Can Now View Performance Scores for 2017 Claims Data on qpp.cms.gov
If you’re an eligible clinician who submitted 2017 Quality performance data for MIPS via claims, you’ll now be able to view your performance scores through the MIPS data submission feature. Reminder: claims data submission is only an option if you’re participating in MIPS as an individual (not as part of a group).
Submitting Quality Performance Data via Claims
If you’ve already submitted quality data via claims, you don’t have to take any additional action. Claims-based quality measures are calculated automatically by CMS based on the Quality Data Codes (G-codes) submitted on your 2017 claims. You can simply login at qpp.cms.gov and view your calculated individual measures' scores and category score for Program Year 2017.
Please note, scoring of claims data is subject to change monthly based on the processing of any additional 2017 claims and adjustments up to 90 days after the end of 2017. It is possible that claims or adjustments that were submitted towards the end of 2017 have not yet processed. Please check back after March 31st, 2018.
Still Time to Submit Claims for 2017
If you still have 2017 claims you’d like to submit for the Quality performance category, make sure to submit them now. Claims, which are processed by Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) (including claims adjustments, re-openings, or appeals), must get to the national Medicare claims system data warehouse (National Claims History file) by March 1, 2018 to be analyzed. The MACs can provide you with specific instructions on how to bill.
