Annual Call for MIPS Quality Measures is Open

March 05, 2019


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) invites eligible clinicians, professional associations and medical associations to submit quality measures for consideration for future years of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The MIPS Annual Call for Quality Measures allows the identification and submission of measure recommendations in the following domains:

  • Patient safety
  • Person and caregiver-centered experience and outcomes
  • Communication and care coordination
  • Effective clinical care
  • Community/population health
  • Efficiency and cost reduction

Measures that are accepted as part of the Call for Quality Measures will be added to the 2019 Measures Under Consideration (MUC) List. The finalized MUC List will be available by December 1, 2019, and reviewed at the National Quality Forum’s Annual Measure Application Partnership meeting in December. CMS will then decide which measures will be considered for future rulemaking.

CMS is hosting a webinar to provide an overview of the Call for Quality Measures process and to address participant questions.

  • Title: MIPS Call for Quality Measures
  • Date: Thursday, March 28
  • Time: 12 to 1 pm ET
  • Registration is available here.
