2020 MIPS final scores

CMS has released the 2020 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance feedback and final scores for eligible clinicians (ECs) and their groups. Final 2020 MIPS scores and performance feedback are available to download at the CMS Quality Payment Program website.

The 2020 MIPS performance feedback FAQ is available here and the 2022 MIPS Payment Adjustment User Guide can be found here.

The performance feedback summary includes the following elements: measure-level performance data and score, activity-level scores, performance category-level scores and weights, final score, and payment adjustment information.

For more information, email the Anesthesia Quality Institute at askaqi@asahq.org or the ASA Department of Quality and Regulatory Affairs at qra@asahq.org.

2020 targeted review period open

Upon review, if a MIPS eligible clinician or group believes there is a discrepancy in their 2020 report, they can request a targeted review by October 1, 2021. ECs and groups can request a targeted review by visiting the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website and logging in with HARP credentials.

For more information about how to request a targeted review, review the Review User Guide.
