The process of MIPS data submission to Medicare can be summarized in a few steps:
1. Check and understand your eligibility on the Quality Payment Program website
Entering your NPI in the participation status tool allows you to understand if Medicare is requiring you to submit 2019 data and, if not, if you have a path to opt-in to the program and be considered from Medicare in the future. Our most recent Eligibility discussion webinar covered the various listings you might see on the tool and how to apply the findings to your goals for your practice. The recording of that session can be found here: Webinar - MIPS 2019 and You: Eligibility (Session 3)
2. Register for Quality Payment Program (QPP) portal access
A username and password are needed to access the Quality Payment Program portal for your practice. If you have not established them before or haven’t used them in a while, you’ll need to re-register. This can be done by following the instructions for CMS’ HARP system. (Please note that the preceding link will initiate a zip file download to your computer containing a series guidance documents)
