Eligible professionals (EPs) billing Medicare Part-B are required to report PQRS measures data individually or through the Group Reporting Option (GPRO).

EPs that do not report are subject to a 2% payment reduction, plus an additional Value-based Modifier reduction of 2% or 4% (depending on group size) on their Medicare Physician Fee Payments in 2017.

The goal of this webinar is to help EPs:

  • Determine the EPs in your organization for PQRS in 2015
  • Decide the participation option (group or individual) that is best suited for them
  • Choose their PQRS reporting mechanism (QCDR, CEHRT, etc.)
  • Understand quality measures and measure reporting requirements
  • Understand data requirements and CMS submission timelines
  • Learn how to report one time in 2015 to:
    • Avoid a 2017 PQRS negative payment adjustment
    • Satisfy the CQM component of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program
    • Satisfy requirements for the 2017 Value-Based Payment Modifier
  • Project PQRS incentives and/or penalties
  • Go beyond PQRS reporting to improve performance and transition to Value-Based Payment Models
