Note Upcoming Deadlines for Submitting 2017 Quality Payment Program Data
Posted on: 2/23/2018

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has introduced a new data submission system for eligible clinicians who are participating in the Quality Payment Program (QPP).

There are two deadlines to submit 2017 performance data, based on your submission mechanism:

  • If you are submitting data through the CMS web interface (for which only groups of 25 or more are eligible), the deadline is March 16, 2018.

  • For anyone not using the CMS web interface (whether reporting as a group or as an Individual), the deadline is March 31, 2018.

Submit 2017 performance data here for the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Once on this site, click "Sign In" at the upper right-hand corner. You will need your Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM)* credentials to sign in to the QPP.

Once the data submission periods close in March, CMS will calculate payment adjustments that will apply to the 2019 payment year.

For more information on the new data system, access CMS' Factsheet, Submitting 2017 Transition Year Data to the Quality Payment Program.

If you need assistance, call 866-288-8292 or send an email.
