CMS Measure ID: #113
Collection Type: CQM
Reporting Frequency: Once per patient per year
High Priority: No
NQS Domain: Effective Clinical Care
Measure Age: > 2 years
This measure is to be submitted a minimum of once per performance period for patients seen during the performance period. There is no diagnosis associated with this measure. Performance for this measure is not limited to the performance period. This measure may be submitted by Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians who perform the quality actions described in the measure based on services provided and the measure-specific denominator coding.
NOTE: Patient encounters for this measure conducted via telehealth (e.g., encounters coded with GQ, GT, 95, or POS 02 modifiers) are allowable.
Measure Submission Type:
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 for registry-based submissions; however, these codes may be submitted for those registries that utilize claims data.
The intent of the exclusion for individuals age 66 and older residing in long-term care facilities, including nursing homes, is to exclude individuals who may have limited life expectancy and increased frailty where the benefit of the process may not exceed the risks. This exclusion is not intended as a clinical recommendation regarding whether the measures process is inappropriate for specific populations, instead the exclusions allows clinicians to engage in shared decision making with patients about the benefits and risks of screening when an individual has limited life expectancy.

DENOMINATOR NOTE: To assess the age for exclusions, the patient’s age on the date of the encounter should be used.
*Signifies that this CPT Category I code is a non-covered service under the Medicare Part B Physician Fee Schedule (PFS). These non-covered services should be counted in the denominator population for MIPS CQMs.

Patients with one or more screenings for colorectal cancer. Appropriate screenings are defined by any one of the following criteria:
- Fecal occult blood test (FOBT) during the measurement period
- Flexible sigmoidoscopy during the measurement period or the four years prior to the measurement period
- Colonoscopy during the measurement period or the nine years prior to the measurement period
- Computed tomography (CT) colonography during the measurement period or the four years prior to the measurement period.
- Fecal immunochemical DNA test (FIT-DNA) during the measurement period or the two years prior to the measurement period.
Do not count digital rectal exams (DRE) fecal occult blood tests (FOBTs) performed in an office setting or performed on a sample collected via DRE.
NUMERATOR NOTE: Patient reported procedures and diagnostic studies, when recorded in the medical record, are acceptable for meeting the numerator.
