The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced relief for clinicians, providers, and facilities participating in the Medicare quality reporting programs.
Among other programs, clinicians and providers will be granted exceptions from reporting requirements and extensions pertaining to measure reporting and data submission for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The deadline for submitting 2019 MIPS data has been extended to April 30.
Those clinicians who fail to submit their MIPS data by that date will receive an extreme and uncontrollable circumstances exemption (i.e., they will receive a neutral adjustment).
