PQRS & Claims Based Reporting?
« on: September 26, 2014, 12:36:15 PM »
I have heard that 2014 is the last year to report PQRS on claims? That beginning in 2015, PQRS must be reported via a certified EHR, a registry, or a group practice reporting option (GPRO). I have read this on several sites such as:

But does anyone have a link for CMS stating this?

thanks!

CMS published a proposed rule for PQRS in the 7-11-14 edition of the Federal Register.  The period for public comments closed on 9-2-14.  CMS will publish a final rule on or about 11-01-14.  The basic outline of the proposed rule is in this pdf document:

http://www.cms.gov/Outreach-and-Education/Outreach/NPC/Downloads/NPC-07-24-14-2015-PropRule.pdf

Notice the blue box at top right of Page 6:  CMS does not propose a change to claims ...  for PQRS at this time.

Notice the top of the blue box on the right side of Page 7:  Remove Claims-based only reporting options for new measures ... Remove Claims-based reporting option from measures groups.


These are proposed changes.  We will not know whether they are incorporated into the Final Rule until on or about 11-01-14.
