Medicare Incentive Program Clinicians
QPP is now open for 2017 Transition Year Data to be submitted!
Starting January 2, 2018, you can go the Quality Payment Program website (https://qpp.cms.gov) and log into the system (using your EIDM Account), to submit your data, and satisfy all MIPS reporting requirements. Please note that groups using the CMS Web Interface do not begin quality reporting and submission until January 22, 2018.
Look for the new Sign In button at the top right of the page on (https://qpp.cms.gov) to begin submitting your data. You have until March 31, 2018 to submit your 2017 data. CMS Web Interface users (groups with 25 or more clinicians, including APM entities) have a shorter timeframe to submit quality data, as the submission window for this method opens January 22, 2018 and closes March 16, 2018 @ 8pm Eastern Time.
Please note that if you’re participating in a MIPS APM or an Advanced APM, work with your APM Entity to discuss any special considerations regarding your submission and performance feedback.
If you would like assistance or help in participating in the MACRA/MIPS program, please contact Management & Medical Consulting Services, LLC at (256) 346-3611 or email email@example.com.
QPP Requires an EIDM Account
In order to participate in the Quality Payment Program, you must have an Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account and an appropriate user role associated with your organization. An EIDM Account gives CMS customers a single identification to use across the many CMS systems.

- To set up an EIDM account, get EIDM account information, or reset your password on an existing EIDM account, visit the CMS Enterprise Portal. For questions, contact the Quality Payment Program at 1-866-288-8292. You can also use the EIDM guide to get started.
- You will need the necessary EIDM account and role information to be able to access the data submission system and submit data.
- To sign into qpp.cms.gov to submit data, you need to use your EIDM credentials, and you must have an appropriate user role associated with your organization.
MEANINGFUL USE PROGRAM NEWS UPDATE
Medicaid's New Resource for Meaningful Use Technical Assistance for MU Eligible Professionals
Effective December 1, 2015, Meaningful Use Technical Assistance will be available to all Medicaid Eligible Professionals who are current participants in the Meaningful Use EHR Incentive Payment Program.

Management & Medical Consulting Services was formed in late 2003 in order to take advantage of an opportunity that developed to take over an under-performing primary care operation in rural Alabama. The acquired operation, as taken over, provided many opportunities for problem solving. The transformation to a successful clinic involved replacing and hiring new providers, acquiring advanced diagnostic equipment, coding and documentation training for providers, retraining of employees, replacing the information and billing system and learning many other important cost management lessons. The company began to provide external Management, Billing and Consulting services and Certified Coding Education services in 2005. Recent improvements include the implementation of Nuclear Stress testing and the formation of Childersburg Diagnostic Imaging as an Independent Diagnostic Test Facility. The company provides facility management and staffing services to surgical specialists who rotate through the area as well.
