MIPS reporting and fee schedule

Relief due to COVID-19 for the 2020 MIPS program now available through February 1, 2021

CMS announced that eligible clinicians, groups, or virtual groups will have the option to apply to be exempt – completely or partially – from the 2020 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program. To do so, complete the Extreme and Uncontrollable Hardship Exemption Application by February 1, 2021 and indicate on the application it is due to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). If approved, dermatologists can have any or all of the MIPS performance categories re-weighted.
