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

SSR Users Updates: December 1

Dear SSR Participants,

The ACS SSR allows you the option to participate in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2017 performance year. Submitting MIPS 2017 data to CMS will allow you to potentially either avoid a negative payment adjustment or earn a positive payment adjustment in calendar year 2019 depending on your level of participation. As a reminder, there is still time to prepare your MIPS 2017 submission data for CMS through the SSR.

Please visit the SSR website to take advantage of resources and training webinars.

Check your MIPS participation status. For additional information about MIPS 2017, visit the ACS Division of Advocacy and Health Policy’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) Resource Center.

If you have questions, please contact us at ssr@facs.org or 312-202-5408.

Thank you,

Your SSR Team
