Important 2018 MIPS Reporting and Quality Payment Program Deadlines

*This post has been updated to include the CMS submission deadline extension.*

Missing an important Quality Payment Program (QPP) deadline could have negative impacts on your organization – including a penalty on your Medicare Part B reimbursements. Keeping track of these deadlines can be tricky, especially in a new and developing quality reporting program.

Here’s a list of upcoming deadlines you should know about to protect your income and become successful in MIPS and the QPP. If you have questions or aren’t sure which deadlines apply to you and your practice, contact us to get help from one of our Quality Reporting Consultants!
