If you are participating in multiple Medicare quality report programs this year, there is a new interactive CMS tool to help you understand how to submit your quality data one time to earn credit for more than one quality program.
The Reporting Once for 2014 Medicare Quality Reporting Programs interactive tool provides 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 Organization (ACO)
- As part of a Pioneer ACO
Using the tool, you will learn whether you 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. It will also help group practices of 10 or more eligible professionals assess the impact of your participation in PQRS on the Value-Based Payment Modifier.
