Register for the CMS Web Interface and CAHPS for MIPS Survey

Do I need to register?

If your group would like to participate in MIPS via the CMS Web Interface and/or elect to administer the CAHPS for MIPS survey, you should register between April 1 - June 30, 2017.

If your group registered for the GPRO Web Interface in 2016 to report for The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), CMS automatically registered your group to use the CMS Web Interface in 2017 for MIPS. If your group would like to participate through another data submission option, you should “cancel” your election in the registration system between April 1- June 30, 2017. Please note if under PQRS you elected the CAHPS for PQRS survey, you were not automatically registered to administer the CAHPS for MIPS survey and will need to log in to the registration system to make that election.

Groups that participate in a Shared Savings Program ACO are not required to register; the Shared Savings Program ACO is required to report quality measures on behalf of participating eligible clinicians for purposes of MIPS.

Do I need to do anything else?

If you registered for the Web Interface in 2016 and wish to continue in 2017, you should review and update your information, between April 1-June 30, 2017, if:

  • The number of eligible clinicians in your group has changed since 2016
  • Your group wants to enroll in the Consumer Assessment of Health Providers and Systems (CAHPS) for MIPS survey
