This measure is to be submitted after each occurrence of a fracture during the performance period. It is anticipated that Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians who treat the fracture will submit this measure. Each occurrence of a fracture is identified by either an ICD- 10-CM diagnosis code for fracture or osteoporosis and a CPT service code OR an ICD-10-CM diagnosis code for fracture or osteoporosis and a CPT procedure code for surgical treatment of a fracture.

NOTE: Patients with a fracture should have documentation in the medical record of communication from theclinician treating the fracture to the clinician managing the patient’s on-going care that the fracture occurred and that the patient was or should be tested or treated for osteoporosis. If multiple fractures occurring on the same date of service are submitted on the same claim form, only one instance of submission will be counted. Claims data will be analyzed to determine unique occurrences. Documentation must indicate that communication to the MIPS eligible clinician managing the on-going care of the patient occurred within three months of treatment for the fracture. The CPT Category II codeshould be submitted during the episode of care (e.g., treatment of the fracture). The submission of the code and documentation of communication do not need to occur simultaneously.

Measure Submission Type:

Measure data may be submitted by individual MIPS eligible clinicians, groups, or third party intermediaries. The listed denominator criteria are used to identify the intended patient population. The numerator options included in this specification are used to submit the quality actions as allowed by the measure. The quality-data codes listed do not need to be submitted by MIPS eligible clinicians, groups, or third party intermediaries that utilize this modality for submissions; however, these codes may be submitted for those third party intermediaries that utilize Medicare Part B claims data. For more information regarding Application Programming Interface (API), please refer to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website.
