MIPS Target Review Deadline is October 9

Published October 04, 2023

On August 10, 2023, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) made available 2022 performance feedback which determines whether physicians will receive a positive, neutral, or negative payment adjustment on Medicare services furnished in 2024. There has been alarming reports of physicians facing MIPS penalties in 2024 for the first time since the program started. AANEM strongly encourages you to view this information as soon as possible for two reasons:


  1. If there are any errors, you should consider submitting an appeal, also called a targeted review. For more information about how to request a targeted review, please refer to the 2022 Targeted Review User Guide (PDF).  The deadline to submit a targeted review is 8 p.m. EST October 9, 2023.

  2. You can help AANEM and the American Medical Association (AMA) advocate against Medicare physician payment cuts in 2024 by sharing this information. If you feel comfortable, you can share de-identified score and corresponding payment adjustment information. This will inform understanding of the impact of MIPS on physician payment in 2024 and can help in conversations with the administration and Congress about ensuring physician payment supports high-quality care to Medicare patients. Please share your information by emailing AANEM staff at policy@aanem.org or the AMA Advocacy staff at ama.advocacy@ama-assn.org.


Physicians can view their 2022 MIPS Performance Feedback information on the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website using their HCQIS Access Role and Profile (HARP) credentials. The CMS Payment Adjustment User Guide (PDF) walks through the process of accessing and downloading performance feedback.
