CMS to host another webinar on PQRS and VBPM

Friday, June 14, 2013

In order to avoid a negative Value-Based Payment Modifier (VBPM) adjustment in 2015 (with performance period of 2013), anesthesia groups of 100 or more eligible professionals (EP) must sign up for or "self-nominate" for the 2013 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program through the Group Payment Reporting Option (GPRO). (NOTE: If groups of 100 or more EPs don't register and report, they face a -1.0 percent Value-Based Payment Modifier penalty in 2015 in addition to any PQRS penalty.)  The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will host  National Provider Call on "Choosing your PQRS Group Reporting Mechanism and Implications for the Value-based Payment Modifier" in Wednesday, July 31, 2013.

What:  CMS National Provider Call on Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Reporting System and Value-Based Payment Modifier (VBPM)
When:  Wednesday, July 31, 2013, 2:30-3:30 P.M. EST
