Doctors and Clinicians Preview Period is Now Open

Doctors and Clinicians Preview Period is Now Open

The Doctors and Clinicians Preview Period is officially open as of November 15, 2021. You can now preview your 2020 Quality Payment Program (QPP) performance information before it will appear on clinician and group profile pages on Medicare Care Compare and in the Provider Data Catalog (PDC). You can access the secured Preview through the QPP website.

Please refer to the resources below on how to preview your information:

For additional assistance with accessing the QPP website or obtaining your HCQIS Access Roles and Profile (HARP) user role, contact the QPP Service Center at QPP@cms.hhs.gov. You can also use this toolkit to learn how to register with HARP.

To learn more about the 2020 QPP performance information that’s available for preview as well as the 2019 clinician utilization data that will be added to the PDC, download these documents from the Care Compare: Doctors and Clinicians Initiative page:

Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Next Generation Model ACOs can preview their performance information via their 2020 MIPS Performance Feedback Reports. Shared Savings Program ACOs can also review quality performance information on their previously provided 2020 Quality Performance Reports. A list of ACO performance information targeted for public reporting is available on the Care Compare: Doctors and Clinicians Initiative page in the downloadable 2020 ACO Performance Information document. ACO level data isn’t available for viewing during the Preview Period.

The Preview Period will close on December 14, 2021 at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).​

Please note the 2020 QPP performance information is targeted for public reporting in 2022 and will be added to Care Compare and/or the PDC after all targeted reviews are completed. If you have an open targeted review request, you’ll still be able to preview your 2020 QPP performance information during the Doctors and Clinicians Preview Period.

If you have any questions about public reporting for clinicians on Care Compare, contact the QPP Service Center at 1-866-288-8292 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. ET) or by e-mail at QPP@cms.hhs.gov. To receive assistance more quickly, consider calling during non-peak hours (before 10 a.m. and after 2 p.m. ET).
