MIPS 2021 Data Submission Now Open
By Joey Berlin


Participants in the 2021 performance year of the Quality Payment Program’s (QPP’s) Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) can now submit their data through the QPP website. You can submit and update your MIPS data until 7 pm CT on March 31.

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), clinicians will need to register in the HCQIS Authorization Roles and Profile (HARP) system to sign in and submit data. If you need help enrolling with HARP, refer to the QPP Access User Guide.

Small practices of 15 or fewer clinicians can receive help through the Small, Underserved, and Rural Support initiative, which offers technical assistance in submitting data. The initiative ends on Feb. 15, so CMS encourages interested practices to inquire about receiving that help early in the data submission period.

For more information on how to submit data, check out the QPP Resource Library. You can also contact QPP at (866) 288-8292 or by email.
