2021 is coming to an end, but before the year is over, there are a few MIPS requirements that must be addressed. Please determine the correct course of action for your practice as soon as possible, as these requirements are time sensitive. As always, Criterions is happy to assist with guidance on these requirements, but only CMS can give definitive client specific clarifications.
By the end of the 2021 calendar year the following MIPS items MUST be completed:
Security Risk Analysis
A completed security risk analysis. The CMS issued tool can be found here.
Documenting and/or updating completed Improvement Activities. A full list can be found here.
Hardship Exemptions exist for practices under strain due to COVID, practice size, rural locations and other issues. The Hardship Exception Application must be completed by the deadline. More information about exceptions can be found here.
