Physicians participating in MIPS are required to submit measures and attestations to CMS by Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). Physicians may participate either as individuals or as members of a group practice. Regardless of how they participate, physicians or other users should use the Manage Physician Group TINs page for several functions, including
Entering Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) information, including effective dates
Selecting whether or not to report MIPS data to CMS using the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO)
Selecting to which NRDR registries the TIN should be associated, so that QCDR measures are available for reporting to CMS
Uploading documentation of their individual or group TINs
All users may access this function.
The Manage Physician Group TINs page is available under the Corporate Account Management Operational menu from the ACR NRDR Homepage.
All TINs associated with the current facility are shown upon opening the page. Alternatively, you can use the filter to search for TINs by various criteria.
Adding a New TIN
After opening the page, click the Add New TIN button, below the table, to enter a new record.
To define a new TIN record, enter data for each of the fields, as described, below. Required fields are marked with an asterisk.
Enter the physician or physician group TIN, or the TIN used in physician or professional component claims. This number must be exactly nine digits.
Select the Physician Group with which the TIN should be associated. Use the Manage Physicians Groups page to enter a new group, if needed.
Select this item if the TIN should be used for the Group Practice Reporting Option, so that MIPS and QCDR quality measures are reported to CMS for all physicians associated with this TIN.
*TIN Start Date
TIN End Date
Enter the date when the TIN became active. An end date is not required unless there is a specific date for when data should no longer be submitted under this TIN for a given registry.
You can associate a TIN to one or more facilities under the same corporate account ID. Click the drop-down icon and select all facilities for which the TIN should apply.
Use the drop-down menu to select the registries with which the TIN is associated. By default, only registries for which the facility is registered are listed.
