2015 PQRS Anesthesia Codes

Susan m Posted Wed 11th of March, 2015 15:33:34 PM

Could you help me understand the changes with (Anesthesia)PQRS for 2015? From what I'm reading have they deleted the Measure #30 entirely. I'm having trouble understanding Measure #193. Have they deleted Code 4256F? Are we supposed to use something in place of that?

Also, what about the Measure #44 and Measure #76? Are there any deletions or changes?

Thanks so much!

Hi,

4256F has been removed in 2015 from measure 193. For 2015 numerator options, Please refer PDF http://www.mdinteractive.com/files/uploaded/file/CMS2015/2015_PQRS_IndividualMeasureSpec_ClaimsRegistry_111014.pdf

at page 305.

No changes in numerator options of Measures #44 and #76 in 2015 and 2014.

Thanks.
