Group Practices: Register for PQRS by Sept. 30
If you are in a group practice with two or more individual eligible professionals (EPs), you can register your practice for the CMS 2014 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) group practice reporting option (GPRO). Authorized representatives of the practice can self-nominate/register through the CMS registration system through Sept. 30, 2014. Complete information about GPRO registration is accessible on the CMS website.
Group practices participating in the GPRO that satisfactorily report data on PQRS measures during the 2014 reporting period (Jan. 1 through Dec. 31) are eligible to earn the 0.5 percent incentive payment and will avoid the negative 2 percent 2016 PQRS payment adjustment.
The AGA Digestive Health Recognition Program™ (DHRP) is a qualified PQRS registry which offers practices the easiest way to report to PQRS, earn the 0.5 percent incentive and avoid any payment adjustments. Participants can submit PQRS measures for the:
- IBD measure group.
- HCV measure group.
- CRC qualified clinical data registry.
