American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

February 14 Is the Deadline to Submit and Approve 2018 MIPS Data through ACS SSR

All surgeons using the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgeon Specific Registry (SSR) to comply with the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for 2018 must approve the data submission for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in the SSR system. As a courtesy, the ACS SSR has extended the deadline to Thursday, February 14.

To complete and approve your MIPS 2018 data submission, log in to the ACS data platform and in the SSR menu go to “Regulatory,” and select “MIPS 2018 Preview Submission Report.” For specific instructions, refer to page three of the educational guide.

Once the MIPS 2018 data submission has been completed and approved, your MIPS 2018 data will be prepared and submitted to CMS. Visit the ACS MIPS Educational Resources web page for more information and instructions. If you no longer wish to participate in MIPS 2018, cancel your participation so that you will not receive further prompts.

For more information, contact the SSR team at ssr@facs.org.
