June 26, 2019: Registration is required by July 1 at 5 p.m. ET for group practices that intend to use the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) Web Interface to submit 2019 MIPS quality data or administer the CAHPS survey for MIPS credit. Groups or individual clinicians planning to collect and submit MIPS quality data in other ways (such as registry or EHR) do not need to register. The following conditions apply for Web Interface and CAHPS:
- Web Interface: Groups must have 25 or more clinicians to register. CMS will automatically register your group in 2019 if you submitted quality data via this mechanism in 2018.
- CAHPS: Groups must have 2 or more clinicians to register. Automatic registration for 2019 does not apply.
