MIPS Deadline Extended to April 15th – Four Final Tips for your Submission 

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the submission deadline for MIPS Performance Year 23 (PY23) to April 15th, 2024. Healthcare Innovation Solutions (HCIS) provides a fast-track option until March 20th ensuring your submission is on target for the extended deadline. Data shows that providers utilizing our consulting services and MIPS Registry score 22% higher than those who do not.  

You can book a 15-min call with one of our MIPS experts  here to get started – but you must ACT NOW! In the meantime, here are a few key last-minute tips for your submission: 

Tip #1 – Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute 

Give yourself as much time as possible to review measures and check for errors or missing data, which could impact your final score. HCIS will also help you check for errors and ensure you have a quality submission before sending to CMS. 

Tip #2 – Have your QPP Credentials Ready 

There are certain credentials necessary to have if you plan to participate in the Quality Payment Program (QPP), and therefore MIPS, including the following: 

  • National Provider Identifier (NPI) 
  • Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) 

In order to submit for MIPS, you’ll need to be registered for a Health Care Quality Information Systems (HCQIS) Access Roles and Profile (HARP) account. If you’re not already registered with the HARP system, you can do so via CMS or ask one of our MIPS experts for assistance 

Tip #3 – Use a Single Method for Reporting Issues 

You may encounter technical issues during your submission process. CMS is inputting large swathes of data and dealing with a high volume of support requests during these final days before the deadline, another reason to have your submission ready sooner rather than later. If you plan on contacting QPP support, they recommend that you use a singular method to report any issues – meaning if you’re reporting via email, don’t switch to reporting via phone call. 

Tip #4 – Submit for MIPS with HCIS 

HCIS is a CMS certified registry, meaning that our submission portal has been officially approved by CMS and we can assist with your MIPS submission! In fact, HCIS will be taking fast-track clients for PY23 MIPS submissions until March 20th, so you should ACT FAST if you’d like the best chance at avoiding penalties and maximizing your final score. 

Since the first year of the MIPS program, HCIS helped providers save $25.9 million in MIPS penalties and helped deliver many more millions in incentive payments for clinicians who submitted with us.
