PQRS Reporting Election Required by October 15, 2013

Providers who wish to elect to participate in the PQRS Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) or elect the Administrative Claims option for the 2013 performance year must do so by Oct. 15. A new system has been created to elect these options, the Physician Value- PQRS (PV-PQRS) system. To access the PV-PQRS system, you will need an Individuals Authorized Access to the CMS Computer Services (IACS) account. CMS also recently released a document to assist providers in determining whether future payment adjustments will be incurred for not successfully participating in various quality reporting programs including PQRS, the VBPM, the e-prescribing incentive program and the EHR Incentive

If your group is a Member of MGMA you can learn more about GPRO and the Administrative Claims options and reference the MGMA Interactive PQRS Impact Assessment Tool to get a feel for the impact that PQRS will have on your 2014-2018 Medicare reimbursement.
