Last year to earn a PQRS incentive payment


This is the last year eligible professionals (EPs) can earn an incentive payment for satisfactorily reporting Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) quality data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and this year’s participation in PQRS will also determine the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment. If you satisfactorily submit PQRS quality measures to CMS using one of the approved reporting options for services provided during the 2014 reporting period, you will qualify to earn an incentive payment. If you qualify, you will receive an incentive payment equal to 0.5 percent of your total estimated Medicare Part B physician fee service (PFS) allowed charges for covered professional services supplied during that same reporting period, and ensure that you will also avoid the 2016 payment adjustment.
