NACOR participant survey

In order to improve the NACOR experience, AQI is soliciting feedback regarding AQI participation, the NACOR dashboard and educational resources for the 2018 reporting year. AQI emailed a short survey to practice champions on Friday, July 26. Complete the survey here. Survey responses are due by Friday, August 23.

2018 MIPS final scores

CMS released the final 2018 MIPS scores. To view final scores, Eligible Clinicians must log in to their HARP accounts with CMS, as AQI does not have access to final scores. Letters with final scores will not be sent to clinicians. Practices without HARP accounts can obtain them through the CMS Enterprise Portal by selecting "PQRS: Physician Quality Reporting System" when prompted to "Choose your application."

Deadline for targeted review of 2018 MIPS scores

Eligible clinicians (ECs) and groups who believe an error was made in their 2018 MIPS scores may request a targeted review by CMS. The deadline to submit for a targeted review is September 30, 2019, and CMS may request practices submit additional documentation to support their appeal. For more information about how to request a targeted review, visit the 2018 Targeted Review Fact Sheet (PDF) and the 2018 Targeted Review FAQs (PDF).
