This week CMS reminded physicians that it is not too late to start participating in the 2010 Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) and potentially qualify to receive incentive payments. A new six month reporting period begins July 1, 2010. For 2010, eligible professionals who satisfactorily report PQRI measures for the 6-month reporting period will become eligible to receive a PQRI incentive equal to 2.0 percent of their total Medicare Part B allowed charges for services performed during the reporting period.
