PQRS

Marilyn Posted Tue 10th of November, 2015 17:05:39 PM

What is PQRS? Our clinic has atleast no more than 10 Medicare patients. Is this something that needs to involve the doctors or is it more of the billing company's responsibility?

Thanks for your question.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is a reporting program that currently uses both incentive payments (bonus) and payment adjustments (penalty) to encourage physicians to submit quality information to CMS. The incentives and adjustments are based on payments for covered Physician Fee Schedule services furnished to Medicare Part B Fee-for-Service beneficiaries.

This program is for provider for incentive payments. For more information, please review below link:
