MIPS attestation deadline March 31: How AOA MORE can help

Doctors of optometry who participated in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) in 2017 must report data to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) by March 31, 2018. CMS has developed useful guidance on submitting data to CMS. Doctors will need to ensure they have an Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account to submit data for the Quality Payment Program.  Your identity will be verified as part of this process. Please note, if you have had a freeze on your credit, you will be required to contact the Experian Help Desk at (866) 578-5409 to create your EIDM account. For some AOA members who are registered with AOA MORE and are using electronic health records (EHRs) that are fully integrated, AOA MORE can be very useful in assisting with data submission to CMS. Read the latest on your EHR vendor status here. With doctor's approval, AOA MORE will begin submitting data to CMS in early February. If you have questions about this process or AOA MORE, please contact qualityimprovement@aoa.org.
