Enroll in AGA’s Jan. 28 or Feb. 25 Webinars on DHRP

Jan. 4, 2016

AGA developed DHRP™ to provide clinicians with an easy way to avoid CMS and payor penalties by demonstrating superior quality of care.

U.S. law has fundamentally changed how physician reimbursement is calculated. Reporting quality is now key to protecting yourself from reimbursement cuts. If you do not report to the CMS Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) for 2015, CMS will cut your payments by 2 percent in 2017 with no exceptions.

That’s why AGA developed the Digestive Health Recognition Program™ (DHRP), in order to provide clinicians with an easy way to avoid CMS and payor penalties by demonstrating superior quality of care in HCV or IBD treatment, or colorectal cancer screening and surveillance. Just submit your data for 2015 by Feb. 26, 2016, to avoid the CMS PQRS 2 percent penalty in 2017.

Learn more about DHRP and participating in PQRS by visiting www.agarecognition.org and by registering for and attending one of two upcoming webinars on Jan. 28, 2016, at 5 p.m. ET or Feb. 25, 2016, at noon ET.
