4/30/2020 at 8 pm EST is the Deadline for Eligible Clinicians and/or Practices to submit their 2019 Quality Payment Program performance data. CMS has also extended the deadline to submit for an Extreme & Uncontrollable Circumstances Hardship.
While CMS has afforded flexibility to automatically apply this Hardship for ECs that have not submitted any data by the deadline, it is best to apply for the Hardship if you have submitted any data for 2019 or in the past, or if you are participating as a group. The automatic hardship has provisions to protect individual ECs at this time.
The good news is that these changes provide those participating in the Quality Payment Program extensive flexibility.
You can access CMS information and the application HERE.
