2022 MIPS Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Exception Application Is Now Open

Attention MIPS Eligible Providers:

The 2022 MIPS performance year Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Exception Application is now OPEN. Submit your applications to CMS by 8 p.m. ET on December 31, 2022.

ATTENTION for Small Practices: Beginning with the 2022 performance year, small practices receive automatic reweighting of the Promoting Interoperability performance category to 0%, whether they choose to participate as an individual or as a group. For more information visit the QPP website.

When would you submit an EUC Exception Application?

MIPS eligible clinicians, groups, and virtual groups may submit an application to reweight quality, cost and/or improvement activities performance categories if they’ve been affected by extreme and uncontrollable circumstances. These circumstances must:

  • Cause you to be unable to collect information necessary to submit for a MIPS performance category;
  • Cause you to be unable to submit information that would be used to score a MIPS performance category for an extended period of time (for example, if you were unable to collect data for the quality performance category for 3 months), and/or;
  • Impact your normal process, affecting your performance on cost measures and other administrative claims measures.

NOTE: For the 2022 performance year, CMS will continue to use the EUC policy allowing eligible clinicians to submit an application requesting reweighting of performance categories due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Visit the EUC Exception QPP webpage for more information and link to the application.
