The Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) has released Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance feedback and final scores for the 2021 performance year along with associated payment adjustment information for 2023. You can view your 2021 MIPS performance feedback, including your final score and 2023 payment adjustment, on the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website by doing the following:
The 2021 MIPS final scores reflect COVID-19 flexibilities, including the following:
Practice representatives can access both individual and group feedback. If you don’t have a HARP account, refer to the “Register for a HARP Account” and “Connect to an Organization” documents in the QPP Access User Guide (zip file).
Individual clinicians and representatives of APM entities will also be able to access performance feedback directly on the QPP website using their HARP account. However, performance feedback isn’t related to model-specific requirements outside the QPP.
Accountable care organization (ACO) individuals can create and manage their HARP account and QPP access in the ACO Management System (ACO-MS). Contact your ACO to find out how you can obtain a HARP account via ACO-MS. If you have any questions, contact the ACO Information Center at SharedSavingsProgram@cms.hhs.gov or 1-888-734-6433 (Option 1). Representatives of Shared Savings Program ACO participant tax identification numbers and practices with clinicians receiving their APM entity's final score won’t be able to access the APM entity’s performance feedback unless they have been approved as a staff user for the APM entity.
To learn more about the information in your performance feedback, refer to the following 2021 MIPS Performance Feedback Resources:
If you believe CMS erred in calculating your score or payment adjustment, you may request a targeted review until Oct. 21, 2022.
