CMS Announces Reopening of 2023 MIPS EUC Application in Response to Change Healthcare Cyberattack

We are writing to inform you that on Friday, March 15, 2024, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reopened the MIPS Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances (EUC) application for the 2023 performance year in response to the Change Healthcare (CHC) cyberattack that occurred in late February 2024. This is an effort to provide relief to MIPS-eligible clinicians impacted by the cyberattack incident. The application will remain open for the extended data submission period, which closes on Monday, April 15, 2024, at 8:00 PM Eastern Time (ET).

Important Note

According to CMS: “Because CMS is reopening the 2023 MIPS EUC Exception application window in response to the Change Healthcare Cyberattack, CMS will only approve applications citing this cyberattack as the basis for requesting reweighting under the MIPS EUC Exception. Any applications submitted for reasons outside of the Change Healthcare Cyberattack will be denied. Additionally, any data submitted to CMS will override your application for those performance categories.”
