On May 9, 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a new feature on the CMS Quality Payment Program Website based on feedback from users like you. CMS received requests for streamlining access when checking individual clinician eligibility for participation. This new feature allows those with an EIDM account to view 2018 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Eligible Clinicians for the associated Tax Identification Number (TIN). This allows you to see the eligibility status of each clinician associated to the affiliated TIN(s) within your group, enabling you to find out if they need to participate in the 2018 performance year for MIPS.
So how does this work? If you have an EIDM account, you can now log in to the QPP Portal and look under the TIN associated with your group to see the eligibility status for all providers tied to that TIN instead of searching by the individual NPI of every provider. For TINs with multiple providers tied to those accounts, this could be a significant time saver!
Need an EIDM account? Take a look at this Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) User Guide to get you started.
