EUC Exception The Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances (EUC) exception is available in 2023 but must be applied for and approved by CMS. Please note that this exception is not automatically granted; CMS frequently denies applications.
Security Risk Analysis HIPAA requires that practices conduct a yearly Security Risk Analysis to identify areas where protected health information (PHI) could be at risk. Be sure to complete an SRA for 2023 prior to MIPS attestation. If you have any questions regarding the Security Risk Analysis, please work with your IT group and they will guide you on how to complete and maintain this on a yearly basis.
