Important MIPS reporting, QPP, and Value Based Care Deadlines

Last updated April 9, 2024: This post will be updated throughout the year with any new or adjusted deadlines.

Missing an important MIPS, Quality Payment Program (QPP), or value-based care (VBC) deadline could have negative impacts on your organization – including penalties or money left on the table. Keeping track of these deadlines can be tricky, especially with overlapping programs that are still evolving.

Mingle Health is a CMS Qualified Registry for the Quality Payment Program including MIPS and the APM Performance Pathway. Learn more about our analytics and reporting solutions here.

MIPS is getting harder; QPP is evolving

The MIPS program is finding its stride and the requirements continue to increase. You’re now at risk of receiving a 9% penalty and must earn a minimum of 75 points to avoid a negative adjustment (up from 45 points for 2020 reporting).

Now, more than ever, it’s important to track and analyze your performance in MIPS and other value-based programs throughout the year. Mingle Health is here to help.

Important Deadlines

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 Program Consultants!
