If your practice has not checked your 2017 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Feedback Report, it is suggested you do so as soon as possible. According to recent reports from the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), there are issues related to “groups” being improperly assessed as “individual” reporters, despite being acknowledged by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as group reporting at the TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) level in preliminary feedback. Feedback Reports have replaced the Quality and Resource Use Report (QRUR).
The Feedback Reports are available at the Quality Payment Program website
. To log in, you need your Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) credentials, which must be accurate for logging in.
Information that does not match your records should be considered for a Targeted Review. This process must be completed by Sept. 30, 2018. CMS has provided a Fact Sheet and process to request a review on your performance feedback. You will need to provide your corresponding data to back up your claims within 30 days of your request. That data will also need to be sent encrypted.
According to CMS, if you believe there’s an error with your final score or feedback, “You will be able to request a targeted review if you believe there is an error, and you may be asked to provide supporting documentation in connection with your request for targeted review. More information on this process will be available on the Quality Payment Program resource library by July. You may request a targeted review by selecting the ‘Request a Review’ link at the bottom of each page of your performance feedback.”

Targeted Review decisions are final and not eligible for further review. If your request is denied, there will be no change to the MIPS final score or your associated payment adjustment.
