How to Obtain the 2012 QRUR and the 2012 IEP PQRS Performance Report

How to obtain your group’s PY 2012 QRURs and 2012 IEP PQRS Performance Report?

On September 16, 2013, CMS made available the PY2012 Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) for group practices with 25 or more eligible professionals (EPs). Subsequently, in December 2013, CMS made available Individual Eligible Professional (IEP) PQRS Performance Reports to all group practices with 25 or more EPs for which at least one EP reported PQRS measures as an individual in 2012 and was found to be PQRS incentive-eligible. Group practices that did not receive a full QRUR in September 2013 may be able to obtain an IEP PQRS Performance Report.

Authorized representatives of groups can access the QRURs and IEP PQRS Performance Reports at https://portal.cms.gov using an Individuals Authorized Access to the CMS Computer Services (IACS) IACS account with one of the following group-specific PV-PQRS System roles:

  • Primary PV-PQRS Group Security Official
  • Backup PV-PQRS Group Security Official
  • PV-PQRS Group Representative

Authorized representatives of groups must sign up for a new IACS account or modify an existing account at https://applications.cms.hhs.gov. Quick reference guides that provide step-by-step instructions for requesting each PV-PQRS System role for new or existing IACS account are available at
http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/PhysicianFeedbackProgram/Self-Nomination-Registration.html.

If a group has already registered and selected its 2013 PQRS group reporting mechanism in the PV-PQRS System, then that same person who registered the group can access the group’s QRUR and IEP PQRS Performance Report using their IACS User ID and password.

If a group does not yet have an authorized representative with an IACS account, then one person representing the group must sign up for an IACS account with the primary Group Security Official role.

If a group has a representative with an existing IACS account, but not one of the three group-specific PV-PQRS System roles listed above, then ensure that the account is still active and then add a group-specific PV-PQRS System role to that person’s existing IACS account.
