Hi Cadiz,
The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is a voluntary reporting program. The program provides an incentive payment to practices with eligible professionals (identified on claims by their individual National Provider Identifier [NPI] and Tax Identification Number [TIN]) who satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) services furnished to Medicare Part B Fee For-Service (FFS) beneficiaries (including Railroad Retirement Board and Medicare Secondary Payer beneficiaries).
When using the claims-based reporting option, each eligible professional (EP) must satisfactorily report on at least 50 percent of eligible instances to qualify for the incentive.

Hope it helps you.

Thank you
