Everything You Need to Know About MIPS 2022 Before the Deadline 

HCIS offers numerous resources to assist you during the final quarter of MIPS 2022, including our submission registry, monthly webinars, and more.  Here’s some information from our latest webinar: How to be Successful in Quarter 4! 

Is there somewhere I can go to check my MIPS status? 

You can check participation status using the NPI Look-up tool on qpp.cms.gov/participation-lookup

All you need to do is enter your 10-digit National Provider Identifier (NPI) number, and you will be given access to the following information: 

  • Whether or not you will provide as a group or as an individual  
  • If there are any special statuses that fall on your NPI 
  • If you are exempt from MIPS 
  • AMP Participation 

To Report for the Promoting Interoperability Performance Category

  • Use 2015 Editing CEHRT and/or 2015 Cures Update CEHRT to collect your data 
  • Submit data for all required measures (unless an exclusion is claimed) for a minimum of any continuous 90-day period between Jan 1 and Dec 31, 2022 
  • Submit “yes” to the Prevention of Actions to Limit or Restrict Inoperability Attestation 
  • Provide your EHR’s CMS Certification ID from the Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) 

Important Terms to Know

Attest – Manual entry of data during the submission period for the Promoting Inoperability and Improvement Activities performance categories 

Benchmark – A point of reference used for comparing Quality or Cost Performance to that of other clinicians 

Group Reporting – MIPS data is collected, aggregated and submitted on behalf all the clinicians in the TIN 

Individual Reporting – Mips data is collected and submitted on behalf a single clinician 

Payment Adjustment – CMS applies adjustments to Medicare reimbursements on future covered professional services based on the clinician’s final MIPS score.  Adjustment goes into effect two years after the performance year 

Performance Year (PY) – The MIPS Performance Year begins on January 1 and ends on December 31 each year.  The data collected is reported in the first few months the following year 

Small Practice – A solo practitioner or a practice (TIN), virtual group or APM Entity with 15 or fewer clinicians 

Virtual Group – A participation option available to solo practitioners and practices with 10 or fewer clinicians that allows them to join forces and submit aggregated data for all the clinicians in the TIN
