Register for CMS Web Interface and CAHPS for MIPS Survey Reporting for the 2020 Quality Performance Period by June 30, 2020

“Registration is required for groups, virtual groups, and Alternative Payment Model (APM) Entities that intend to submit data for the Quality performance category via the CMS Web Interface and/or administer the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Survey for the 2020 Quality performance period.

  • Groups, virtual groups, and APM Entities must have 25 or more clinicians (including at least one MIPS eligible clinician) to register to use the CMS Web Interface.
  • Groups, virtual groups, and APM Entities must have 2 or more clinicians (including at least one MIPS eligible clinician) to register to administer for the CAHPS for MIPS Survey.
  • NOTE:  APM Entities, specifically Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program or the Next Generation ACO Model, do not need to register to use the CMS Web Interface or administer the CAHPS for MIPS Survey because they are required to submit data via the CMS Web interface and administer the CAHPS for ACO Survey. 

If your group or virtual group submitted data for the Quality performance category via the CMS Web Interface for the 2019 performance period, you’ll automatically be registered for the 2020 performance period unless you cancel your registration. Please note, if your group or virtual group registered to administer the CAHPS for MIPS Survey for the 2019 Quality performance period, you’ll need to register again to administer the CAHPS for MIPS Survey for the 2020 Quality performance period.

How to Register

If your group, virtual group, or APM Entity would like to submit data for the Quality performance category using the CMS Web Interface and/or administer the CAHPS for MIPS Survey for the 2020 Quality performance period, you must register by 8:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on June 30, 2020.  You may edit or cancel your registration at any time during the registration period.

Who Does Not Need to Register
