QPP 2017 Exemption Reminder and Attestation

2017 MIPS Exemption

Remember that some Louisiana providers are exempt from 2017 MIPS reporting due to The Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances Policy following Tropical Storm Harvey. If your PECOS information lists you in one of these affected parishes, you do not need to report data in 2017:

  •  Acadia
  • Allen
  • Assumption
  • Beauregard
  • Calcasieu
  • Cameron
  • DeSoto
  • Iberia
  • Jefferson Davis
  • Lafayette
  • Lafourche
  • Natchitoches
  • Plaquemines
  • Rapides
  • Red River
  • Sabine
  • St. Charles
  • St. Mary
  • Vermillion
  • Vernon

EIDM Account Needed for QPP Attestations

Eligible clinicians planning to attest to completion of Improvement Activities or Advancing Care Information Measures need to obtain an EIDM account from CMS. The Guide for Obtaining an EIDM Account and ‘Physician Quality and Value Programs’ Role for Quality Payment Program (QPP) Submissions is a valuable resource with step-by-step instructions on the application process.

Contact LAMMICO Practice Management Specialist, Natalie Cohen, MBA, MHA, at 504.841.2727 or via email at for more information or for a personalized consultation.
