The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) (@CMSGov) opened the Doctors and Clinicians Preview Period on November 15, 2021. The Preview Period provides an opportunity for doctors and clinicians to review their 2020 Quality Payment Program (QPP) performance information before it’s publicly reported on clinician and group profile pages on Medicare Care Compare and in the Provider Data Catalog (PDC).
You can access the secured Preview through the QPP website.
Please refer to the resources below on how to preview your information:
- Pre-recorded Presentation: Preview Period: Performance Information for Doctors and Clinicians (Recording) (Slides) (Transcript)
- Doctors and Clinicians Preview Period User Guide
For additional assistance with accessing the QPP website or obtaining your HARP user role, contact the QPP Service Center at QPP@cms.hhs.gov. You can also use this toolkit to learn how to register with HARP.
To learn more about the 2020 QPP performance information that’s available for preview as well as the 2019 clinician utilization data that will be added to the PDC, download these documents from the Care Compare: Doctors and Clinicians Initiative page:
- Clinician Performance Information on Medicare Care Compare: 2020 Doctors and Clinicians Public Reporting
- Group Performance Information on Medicare Care Compare: 2020 Doctors and Clinicians Public Reporting
Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Next Generation Model ACOs can preview their performance information via their 2020 MIPS Performance Feedback Reports. Shared Savings Program ACOs can also review quality performance information on their previously provided 2020 Quality Performance Reports. A list of ACO performance information targeted for public reporting is available on the Care Compare: Doctors and Clinicians Initiative page in the downloadable 2020 ACO Performance Information document. ACO level data isn’t available for viewing during the Preview Period.
The Preview Period will close on December 14, 2021 at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).
Please note the 2020 QPP performance information is targeted for public reporting in 2022 and will be added to Care Compare and/or the PDC after all targeted reviews are completed. If you have an open targeted review request, you’ll still be able to preview your 2020 QPP performance information during the Doctors and Clinicians Preview Period.
