PQRS

Sharol Posted Thu 30th of January, 2014 19:12:49 PM

I Can't find anything about the change in Anesthesia Measure 193, I printed the 2014 PQRS Option for Individual Measures, Claims,Registry

I can't see anything that Kelly Dennis is referring to about 4553F,4555F and 4559F and 4560F. Can you give me a link to the data from CMS on this issue, the other issue of 0581F and 0582F, what Measure are they in.

The codes you are referring to are actually CPT codes from AMA, not from CMS. They're published in CPT 2014 as Category II codes, which means they're for data collection/performance tracking. They aren't listed with CMS info about PQRS, but relate to the anesthesia measure 193.

I hope that helps a bit.
