2020 MIPS Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Exception Application: Deadline February 1

January 8, 2021
Policy Snapshot

To further support clinicians during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), CMS extended the 2020 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Exception application deadline to February 1. For the 2020 performance year, MIPS-eligible clinicians, groups, and virtual groups can submit an application asking CMS to reweight one or more performance categories to 0% due to the current COVID-19 PHE. If you have concerns about the effect of the COVID-19 PHE on your performance data, including cost measures, submit an application and cite COVID-19 as the reason for your application.
