CMS Announces Relief for Clinicians in the 2020 MIPS Program

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced it will expand its COVID-19 relief provisions to include clinicians participating in the 2020 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance year.

From now until Dec. 31, 2020, clinicians can use the Extreme & Uncontrollable Circumstances Application to request relief for participation in MIPS. Those who submit relief applications will be asked to provide justification showing how their practice has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Visit the CMS Extreme & Uncontrollable Circumstances page for more information.
