2024 Call for MIPS Improvement Activities is Open

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) encourages you to submit improvement activities for consideration for future years of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The MIPS Annual Call for Improvement Activities process allows clinicians, professional associations and medical societies that represent clinicians, researchers, consumer groups, and others to identify and submit activities.

What We’re Looking For

CMS is looking for the following when considering new activities:

  • relevant to an existing improvement activities subcategory (or a proposed new subcategory);
  • move toward achieving improved beneficiary health outcomes;
  • feasible to implement, recognizing importance in minimizing burden, including, to the extent possible, for small practices, practices in rural areas, or practices in areas designated as geographic Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA);
  • has evidence that supports that an activity has a high probability of contributing to improved beneficiary health outcomes;
  • can be linked to existing and related MIPS quality, Promoting Interoperability, and cost measures as applicable and feasible;
  • can be validated by CMS;
  • do not duplicate other improvement activities in the Inventory;
  • should drive improvements that go beyond purely common clinical practices.
