The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) wants to remind you that the end of the 2021 Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Self-Nomination period is September 1, 2020 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time (ET). The Self-Nomination Tool on the QPP website will lock at the deadline and additional edits will not be permitted.

Please ensure that your 2021 MIPS Self-Nomination Form is complete and click the Submit for Review button before the deadline in the Self-Nomination tool on the Quality Payment Program website.

Submission

You can only submit the Self-Nomination Form for review after all required fields are complete on each tab. Each tab has a Vertical Progress Indicator on the left side of the form that shows your progress. A green checkmark shows you’ve completed the tab, and the Submit for Review button becomes enabled. Once you’ve selected the Submit for Review button, the Vendor Landing page will list your self-nomination with the nomination status In Self-Nomination Review.

For Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) submitting QCDR measures for review, please complete and upload the 2021 QCDR Measure Submission Template before the Self-Nomination period closes on September 1, 2020. If your 2021 QCDR Measure Submission Template has been pre-populated, please do not modify the PIMMS Tracking ID and Measure ID fields to maintain accuracy. Please note QCDR measure submissions will not be reviewed or accepted if they are not included in the 2021 QCDR Measure Submission Template.

If you have submitted your Self-Nomination Form, please check your submitted application periodically for any follow-up questions regarding your Self-Nomination Form or QCDR measures, and/or correspondence as a high volume of notifications are sent.
