The Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) has released 2019 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance feedback and final scores. If you submitted data for the 2019 performance period, you can view your MIPS performance feedback and final score on the Quality Payment Program website.
You can access your 2019 MIPS performance feedback and final score by:
- Going to cms.gov/login
- Logging in using your HCQIS Access Roles and Profile (HARP) system credentials; these are the same credentials that allowed you to submit your 2019 MIPS data
If you don’t have a HARP account, please refer to the Register for a HARP Account document in the QPP Access User Guide and start the process now.
To learn more about performance feedback, review the 2019 MIPS Performance Feedback Resources:
- 2019 MIPS Performance Feedback FAQs—Highlights what performance feedback is, who receives the feedback, and how to access it on the Quality Payment Program website.
- 2019 MIPS Performance Feedback Patient-Level Data Reports FAQs—Provides information on the patient-level data reports for download by those who were scored on a 2019 MIPS cost measure and/or the 2019 30-Day All-Cause Readmission (ACR) measure.
MIPS Eligible Clinicians Participating in MIPS Alternative Payment Model (APM) Entities
If you participated as a MIPS APM under one of the following models in 2019, your MIPS performance feedback is now available via the Quality Payment Program website:
- Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced Model (BPCI Advanced)
- Comprehensive ESRD Care (CEC) Model (LDO arrangement)
- Comprehensive ESRD Care (CEC) Model (non-LDO one-sided risk arrangement)
- Comprehensive ESRD Care (CEC) Model (non-LDO two-sided risk arrangement)
- Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Model
- Medicare Shared Savings Program (all tracks)
- Next Generation ACO Model
- Oncology Care Model (OCM) (one-sided Risk Arrangement)
- Oncology Care Model (OCM) (two-sided Risk Arrangement)
- Vermont Medicare ACO Initiative (as part of the Vermont All-Payer ACO Model)
- Maryland Primary Care Program
- Independence at Home Demonstration
Under the MIPS APM Scoring Standard, the performance feedback will be based on the APM Entity score and is applicable to all MIPS eligible clinicians within the APM Entity. Note: Performance feedback is not related to model-specific requirements and assessments outside of the Quality Payment Program.
Individual clinicians and representatives of the APM Entity will be able to access performance feedback directly on the Quality Payment Program website using their HARP account.
CMS is implementing multiple flexibilities for the Quality Payment Program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We determined that the MIPS automatic extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy would be applied to all individual MIPS eligible clinicians for the 2019 performance period, and we reopened the 2019 extreme and uncontrollable circumstances application to allow requests for reweighting of the MIPS performance categories to 0%.
The 2019 MIPS final scores available on the Quality Payment Program website reflect these COVID-19 flexibilities. Learn more about the COVID-19 flexibilities in the COVID-19 Response Fact Sheet and COVID-19 Response Webpage.
