Due to the 2019 coronavirus pandemic public health emergency, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is applying the automatic extreme and uncontrollable circumstances (EUC) policy to all individual MIPS eligible clinicians for the 2021 MIPS performance year. The automatic EUC policy doesn’t apply to group, virtual group, or APM Entity participation.
Individually eligible clinicians will automatically have all performance categories reweighted to 0% and receive a final score equal to the performance threshold, which will result in a neutral payment adjustment (neither a positive nor a negative adjustment) for the 2023 MIPS payment year unless:
- The clinician submits data as an individual for 2 or more MIPS performance categories (quality, improvement activities, and/or promoting interoperability);
- The clinician is part of a group or APM Entity that submits data on behalf of its clinicians, resulting in a higher final score; or
- The clinician is part of a virtual group.
