The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has posted feedback reports for providers who submitted Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) data for dates of service between Jan. 1 – Dec 31, 2012. An NPI level report is available on the Quality Reporting Communication Support Page and a TIN level report is available on the QualityNet webpage.
PQRS reporting in 2013 is more important than ever. Eligible providers who do not report PQRS measures in 2013 will receive a 1.5 percent penalty on all Medicare Part B charges in 2015. Members are encouraged to visit the AASM website for more information on using PQRSwizard to report the sleep apnea measures group.
