CMS Miscalculated Some 2017 MIPS Scores

Baltimore, MD - The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has disclosed that it miscalculated some 2017 performance scores under the MIPS program. As such, scores for clinicians affected have been recalculated. Because of the budget neutrality of the MIPS program, some clinicians that were not initially affected by the miscalculated scores may see their scores and payment adjustments change slightly.

How to Tell if Your Clinicians are Affected:

Did your clinicians:

  • Use the 2017 Advancing Care Information (ACI) and/or Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances hardship exceptions?
  • Participate in the Improvement Activities (IA) Burden Reduction Study?
  • Report the All-Cause Hospital Readmission measure (only groups of 16 or more clinicians)?

If you answered yes to any of the above, your score may have been calculated incorrectly. The first step you should take is to log into the QPP website and review your performance feedback report. If you suspect that something is inaccurate in your report, you need to apply for a targeted review of your clinicians' final MIPS scores.

CMS has extended the deadline for a targeted review to October 15 at 8:00 pm ET.

AAOE is encouraging all members participating in MIPS and who have not reviewed their 2017 feedback reports or have not reviewed them since September 13 to log into the QPP website and review their revised performance feedback reports.
