And the Final Score Is…

CMS has released the final scores and payment adjustment determinations based on the data you submitted to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). I will be blogging about my report soon. Since it’s likely that you are among the 91% of clinicians who participated in the 2017 Quality Payment Program (QPP), you can see how you scored by signing in to the QPP portal using your Enterprise Identify Data Management account. If you don’t have one, refer to this CMS guide.

MIPS final scores rate clinicians on a 0-100 point scale. For the 2017 performance year, you need a final score of at least 3 points to avoid a pay cut in 2019, a score between 3.1 and 69.9 for a bonus payment, and a score between 70 and 100 for an exceptional performance bonus.

If you believe there’s been an error in your calculations, you can request a targeted review before Sept. 30. If you miss this deadline, there will be no other way to file an appeal.

For complete details and FAQs, refer to these CMS resources:

If you have questions, contact the QPP Service Center at (866) 288-8292, or email them at
