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

New Resources Available to Assist in MIPS Reporting

Surgeons who are responsible for reporting their own Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) data as individuals can access new resources on the American College of Surgeons (ACS) website. The three instructional video presentations are specifically designed to assist Fellows in the following ways:

  • Provide an overview of the MIPS program and its reporting requirements for 2018
  • Offer a simple, low-burden mechanism for avoiding the penalty for failure to report 2018 MIPS data
  • Demonstrate in a step-by-step fashion the process of reporting 2018 data for MIPS using the ACS Surgeon Specific Registry (SSR)
