CMS Opens 2019 MIPS Submission Portal; Data Must Be Submitted by March 31, 2020

Last week, CMS opened the submission portal for 2019 MIPS data. Eligible clinicians have until March 31, 2020 to submit 2019 performance data that will impact 2021 payments.

Please note: If you are using a third-party vendor to submit MIPS data, such as the IRIS Registry, you do not need to submit data through the CMS portal. Once data has been submitted on your behalf by the third party, you can log in to the CMS portal to review it. In addition, third-party vendors may have alternative deadlines to complete data entry. Please consult with your vendors for specific details.

Logging into the CMS QPP Portal

To sign in and submit data, clinicians will need to register in the HCQIS Authorization Roles and Profile (HARP) system. For clinicians who need help enrolling with HARP, please refer to the QPP Access User Guide.

ASCRS ASOA Resources

ASCRS and ASOA members continue to have full access to the MACRA Center, which includes both 2019 and 2020 MIPS information. If you need additional assistance, please contact Allison Madson, manager of regulatory affairs, at or 703-591-2220.
