Description: Physical therapists who bill Medicare for outpatient physical therapy services in private practice settings (using the 1500 claim form or 837-P) can obtain a 0.5% bonus payment in 2014 if they report on quality measures under a program, referred to as the Physician Quality Reporting System or PQRS. In addition, physical therapists who successfully report under the PQRS program in 2014 will avoid the 2.0% reduction in payment from Medicare in 2016.
Heather Smith, PT, MPH, program director of quality at APTA, will tell you what you need to know about the physician quality reporting system for 2014, including program changes impacting physical therapists, and provide practical approaches for participating. During the Q & A session following the presentation, you may ask your questions directly to the experts.
