CMS Offering a Supplemental 30-Day Preview Period for Physician Compare

2019 is the first year that Quality Payment Program (QPP) performance information will be publicly reported, and many stakeholders have asked the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for additional time to review their data before it is publicly reported. As such, a supplemental Physician Compare preview period is being offered. All eligible clinicians and groups should check their performance information by logging into the QPP website.

The supplemental 30-day preview period opened on March 28, 2019, and will close on April 27, 2019. The latest 2017 performance information is available for public reporting. In year two of the QPP, there will be a standard 30-day preview period.

The following resources are available on how to preview performance information:
