The Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) will be updating the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance feedback and final scores for some clinicians for performance year 2020 and the associated MIPS payment adjustment information for payment year 2022.

We are committed to ensuring transparency in our program and alerting clinicians as soon as possible when issues are discovered. Our intention is to provide clinicians advanced notice that they may see some change to their current final scores and payment adjustment information. Additionally, because of these expected changes we will also be extending the targeted review period. More details about what will change from the initial release, who is impacted and how this will affect MIPS payment adjustments, as well as the new targeted review period deadline are coming soon. We appreciate your patience as we work to confirm the information we’re providing you is accurate.

Additional Resources:

You can view your current MIPS performance feedback, final score, and payment adjustment on the Quality Payment Program website.  Please note the information you see now may be changing.

You can access your 2020 MIPS performance feedback, 2020 final score, and 2022 payment adjustment information 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 2020 MIPS data
