MIPS eligible members may now apply to reweight any or all MIPS performance categories if they have been affected by extreme and uncontrollable circumstances. Extreme and uncontrollable circumstances are defined as rare events entirely outside of your control and the control of the facility in which you practice. According to CMS, these circumstances must:

  • cause you to be unable to collect information necessary to submit for a MIPS performance category;
  • cause you to be unable to submit information that would be used to score a MIPS performance category for an extended period of time (for example, if you were unable to collect data for the quality performance category for 3 months), and/or;
  • impact your normal process, affecting your performance on cost measures and other administrative claims measures.

CMS continues to allow the submission of an application requesting reweighting of performance categories for the 2022 performance year due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.  Members are encouraged to learn more and submit their application. Applications may be submitted through December 31, 8 p.m. ET.
