Wednesday, September 28, 2016 Now Available: Your 2015 PQRS Data – and Possible Payment Reductions for 2017 Participating in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)? You can now check on your 2015 reporting results, and find out if those results mean you're subject to any payment adjustments for 2017. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that the reporting results—known as the Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs)—as well as the feedback reports are now available for online viewing. The 2015 PQRS feedback report contains all detailed information used to determine your 2015 reporting results and indicates if you are subject to the 2017 PQRS negative payment adjustment. CMS is advising PQRS participants to review all information for accuracy. You can access the reports through the CMS "enterprise portal," but to do that you'll need an enterprise identity management (EIDM) account (CMS provides instructions for creating an EIDM). Also available: a user guide to the reports. In addition to the reports, CMS has also announced that will soon send out individual notices to providers who did not met PQRS requirements in 2015. Those providers are subject to a 2.0% Medicare Part B payment reduction beginning in 2017. If you have been identified for a 2017 payment reduction based on the report, and you think that decision was made in error, you'll need to ask for an informal review. CMS offers instructions on that process on the PQRS Analysis and Payment webpage.
