High Priority MeasureYes
Percentage of medical records of patients aged 18 years and older with a diagnosis of major depressive disorder (MDD) and a specific diagnosed comorbid condition (diabetes, coronary artery disease, ischemic stroke, intracranial hemorrhage, chronic kidney disease [Stages 4 or 5], End Stage Renal Disease [ESRD] or congestive heart failure) being treated by another clinician with communication to the clinician treating the comorbid condition
This measure is to be submitted a minimum of once per performance period for all patients with a diagnosis of MDD seen during the performance period. This measure may be submitted by Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians who perform the quality actions described in the measure for the primary management of patients with major depressive disorder based on the services provided and the measure-specific denominator coding.
Measure Submission Type:
Measure data may be submitted by individual MIPS eligible clinicians, groups, or third party intermediaries. The listed denominator criteria are used to identify the intended patient population. The numerator options included in this specification are used to submit the quality actions as allowed by the measure. The quality-data codes listed do not need to be submitted by MIPS eligible clinicians, groups, or third party intermediaries that utilize this modality for submissions; however, these codes may be submitted for those third party intermediaries that utilize Medicare Part B claims data. For more information regarding Application Programming Interface (API), please refer to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website.

Medical records of patients with communication to the clinician treating the comorbid condition
Communication – Transmission of relevant clinical information which specifies that the patient has MDD.
NUMERATOR NOTE: Denominator Exception(s) are determined on the date of the denominator eligible encounter.
Performance Met: Clinician treating Major Depressive Disorder communicates to clinician treating comorbid condition (G8959)
Denominator Exception: Clinician treating Major Depressive Disorder did not communicate to clinician treating comorbid condition for specified patient reason (e.g. patient is unable to communicate the diagnosis of a comorbid condition; the patient is unwilling to communicate the diagnosis of a comorbid condition; or he patient is unaware of the comorbid condition, or any other specified patient reason) (G9232)
Performance Not Met: Clinician treating Major Depressive Disorder did not communicate to clinician treating comorbid condition, reason not given (G8960)
