New CMS Resources Available for Multiple Medicare Quality Reporting Programs

Monday, May 19, 2014

For those members choosing to participate in multiple Medicare quality reporting programs in 2014, there is a new interactive CMS tool that will help you understand how to submit your quality data one time only to earn credit for more than one quality program.
 
“The Reporting Once” tool for 2014 Medicare Quality Reporting Programs interactive tool can be found on the PQRS website.  It provides reporting guidance based on how you plan to participate in PQRS in 2014:
 
• As an individual eligible professional 
• As part of a group practice 
• As part of a Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization (ACO) 
• As part of a Pioneer ACO 

By using the interactive tool, members will learn whether they will be incentive eligible for PQRS in 2014, avoid the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment, and satisfy the clinical quality measure component of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. If members are part of a group practice with 10 or more eligible professionals, the tool will also help you assess the impact of your participation in PQRS on the Value-Based Payment Modifier. 

Questions should be directed to Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs Maureen Amos at (202) 289-2222.
