2020 MIPS scores

CMS has released preliminary feedback regarding the 2020 MIPS performance year. Practices can review their feedback by logging in to their account on the Quality Payment Program website. To log in, you must have a HARP account.

CMS anticipates the final feedback scores will be available in August. The targeted review deadline will be announced after release of the final scores.

For questions regarding the feedback, contact the Quality Payment Program help desk at 1 (866) 288-8292 or email QPP@cms.hhs.gov.

FTP Access: Inactive After 90 Days

For security reasons, all FTP accounts (for those who upload data to NACOR) will be disabled if no activity occurs within a 90-day window. If your practice is ready to start submitting data, you may not have access to log in to the FTP.

If you suspect your account has been disabled due to inactivity, submit a help desk ticket by emailing NACORSupport@asahq.org. FTP access has no impact on user access to the NACOR dashboard.
