MIPS 2022 data submission period is now open

MIPS eligible clinicians can start submitting their 2022 data through March 31. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has opened the data submission period for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians who participated in the 2022 performance year of the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Data can be submitted and updated until8 p.m. ET on March 31, 2023.

How to submit your 2022 MIPS data

  1. Go to the Quality Payment Program sign in page.
  2. Sign in using your QPP access credentials (see below for directions).
  3. Submit your MIPS data for the 2022 performance year or review the data reported on your behalf by a third party. (You can’t correct errors with your data after the submission period, so it’s important to make sure the data submitted on your behalf is accurate).

How to sign in to the QPP data submission system

To sign in and submit data, clinicians will need to register in the HCQIS Authorization Roles and Profile (HARP) system. For clinicians who need help enrolling with HARP, please refer to the Quality Payment Program Access User Guide (zip).

Note: Clinicians who are unsure about their eligibility to participate in MIPS for the 2022 performance year can check their final eligibility status using the QPP Participation Status Tool. Clinicians and groups that are opt-in eligible will need to make an election to opt-in or voluntarily report before they can submit data. (No election is required for those who don’t want to participate in MIPS.)

More information

To learn more about how to submit data, please review the following resources available on the QPP Resource Library:

Additional resources will be posted to the Resource Library later this month. You may also contact the Quality Payment Program at 1-866-288-8292 or by e-mail at:

Payment adjustments

2023 MIPS Payment Adjustments are in effect based on 2021 performance. In August 2022, each MIPS eligible clinician received a 2021 MIPS final score and associated payment adjustment factor(s) as part of their 2021 MIPS performance feedback, available on the Quality Payment Program website.

2023 MIPS payment adjustments, based on each MIPS eligible clinician’s 2021 MIPS final score, will now be applied to payments made for Part B covered professional services payable under the Physician Fee Schedule. Payment adjustments are determined by the final score associated with your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)/National Provider Identifier (NPI) combination.

MIPS eligible clinicians, identified by TIN/NPI combination for the 2021 performance year, will receive a positive, neutral, or negative MIPS payment adjustment in 2023 if they:

  • Were a clinician type that was included in MIPS;
  • Enrolled in Medicare prior to Jan. 1, 2021;
  • Weren’t a Qualifying Alternative Payment Model (APM) Participant (QP);
  • Were a Partial Qualifying APM Participant (Partial QP) that elected to participate in MIPS as a MIPS eligible clinician; and
  • Met one of the following criteria:
    • Individually exceeded the low-volume threshold;
    • Were in a practice that exceeded the low-volume threshold at the group level and submitted group or APM Entity data; or
    • Were part of an approved virtual group.
