CMS Holds Physicians
Harmless from MIPS
Penalties in the Midst
of COVID-19 Pandemic

Last Updated: Feb 25, 2021
On Feb. 25, 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CMS) announced it will hold physicians harmless from up
to nine percent of MIPS penalties due to the significant disruptions
of the COVID-19 public health emergency on physician practices'
performance in 2020.
The Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Hardship
Exception policy will be automatically applied to ALL MIPS
eligible clinicians who do not submit any MIPS data for the 2020
performance period and avoid a 2022 payment penalty. CMS also
is reopening the hardship exception application for group practices,
virtual groups, and alternative payment model entities who missed the
previous 2020 deadline. The re-opened application deadline is March
31, 2021. Note, groups and eligible clinicians who submit data in at
least two MIPS categories will override the hardship exception and be
eligible to earn a bonus from the exceptional performance bonus pool
or potentially be subject to a penalty.
