The time has come to report your 2017 MIPS performance data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and begin collecting your data for 2018.
The CMS portal is now open and will accept 2017 MIPS data until Saturday, March 31. You must submit data by the Saturday, March 31, deadline to avoid a negative 4% Medicare Part B payment adjustment in 2019.
Additionally, you should plan to begin collecting quality data for the 2018 performance period. The American Academy of Family Physicians offers a variety of resources to help you navigate the MIPS path, including the new 2018 MIPS Playbook.
Don’t wait! Submit your MIPS data today and remember to check out the 2018 MIPS Playbook to help you stay on track in 2018.
