    MIPS 2020 Performance Year

    Cost Category Reweighted to 0% for the MIPS 2020 Performance Year

    Last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a reweighting of the Cost category for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) 2020 performance year. Previously weighted at 15% of a clinician or group’s total MIPS score, the Cost category for the 2020 performance year will now be weighted at 0%.

    The 15% has been redistributed to the Quality and Promoting Interoperability categories, which are now weighted at 55% and 30%, respectively.

    These changes are effective for all MIPS eligible clinicians for the 2020 performance period, regardless of whether they participated as individuals, in a group or virtual group, or as part of an alternative payment model (APM).

    No changes have been made to the performance category weights for the 2021 performance year. To learn more about MIPS, visit our MIPS page or visit the CMS Quality Payment Program website.
