The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced it has reopened its reweighting request period for the 2020 MIPS performance year due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Clinicians, groups, virtual groups, and Alternative Payment Model (APM) Entities may request MIPS performance category reweighting for 2020 under the Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances (EUC) policy now through November 29, 2021, at 8 p.m. ET. All clinicians should carefully review their final individual and group-level MIPS scores and payment adjustment information as some clinicians are receiving a penalty if their practice coded Medicare Part B claims in 2020.
