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

SSR Users Updates: December 29

Dear SSR Participants,

The end of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) 2017 performance year is fast approaching. There is still time to avoid a 4 percent cut to your Medicare payments in 2019 by participating in MIPS through the Surgeon Specific Registry (SSR).

Failure to submit any data in 2017 will result in a 4 percent penalty in your Medicare Part B payments in 2019. The deadline to submit any MIPS 2017 data through the SSR is Wednesday, January 31, 2018. Please visit the SSR MIPS Resources and Education page to learn how the SSR can help you meet reporting requirements.

If you have questions, please reach out to us at or 312-202-5408. Please note the ACS will be closed for the New Year holiday on Monday, January 1, and Tuesday, January 2. Tech Support will also not be available on Monday, January 1.

We wish you a happy holiday season.

Thank you,

Your SSR Team
