2023 MIPS Exception Application Now Available

On May 1, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) opened the online portal to accept 2023 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances (EUC) exception applications. CMS will continue to allow clinicians, groups, virtual groups and alternative payment model entities to request MIPS performance category reweighting for performance year 2023 under its EUC policy through Jan. 2, 2024. As a reminder, MIPS EUC exception applications can be submitted for one or more performance categories. On a recent webinar, CMS confirmed that it would allow stakeholders to cite COVID-19 as a triggering event on exception applications despite the end of the public health emergency.
