How to Obtain a QRUR

CMS transitioned Individuals Authorized Access to CMS Computer Services (IACS) accounts to the Enterprise Identity Management System (EIDM). Beginning on July 13, 2015, an IACS account can no longer be used to access Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs); instead, an EIDM account will be required to access QRURs at https://portal.cms.gov. Instructions for obtaining an EIDM account are provided below.   

You can access a QRUR on behalf of a group or solo practitioner at https://portal.cms.gov. QRURs are provided for each Medicare-enrolled Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). You or one person from your group will need to obtain an EIDM account with the correct role first. The sections below, “Setting up an EIDM account to access a group’s QRUR” and “Setting up an EIDM account to access a solo practitioner’s QRUR”, will tell you how. Once you have an EIDM account with the correct role, follow the step-by-step instructions provided in the reference guide located in the “Downloads” section below, to access the QRUR.

To find out whether there is already someone who can access your TIN’s QRUR, please contact the QualityNet Help Desk at the number provided in the “Technical Assistance” section below and provide your TIN and the name of your group (or your name, if you are a solo practitioner). If your group has already registered for a PQRS group reporting mechanism, then the same person who registered the group can access the group’s QRUR using his or her EIDM User ID and password. If you want to be able to access the QRUR yourself, then please refer to the information below.

For information on the 2015 PQRS Feedback Reports and how to request them, individual EPs and group practices should visit the PQRS Analysis and  Payment webpage and access the "2015 PQRS Feedback Report User Guide" and the "Quick Reference Guide for Accessing 2015 PQRS Feedback Reports".

Both the PQRS Feedback Reports and QRURs can be accessed at https://portal.cms.gov using the same EIDM account.

Setting up an EIDM account to access a group’s QRUR
  • A group is defined as a TIN with 2 or more eligible professionals (EPs), as identified by their National Provider Identifier (NPI), that bill under the TIN.
  • To access a group's QRUR, one person from the group must first sign up for an EIDM account with the Security Official role.
    • If additional persons are needed to access the group's QRUR, then they can also request the Security Official role or the Group Representative role in EIDM.
  • If you do not have an IACS or EIDM account, then follow the instructions provided here to sign up for an EIDM account with the correct role.
  • If you already have an EIDM account, then follow the instructions provided here to sign up for the correct role in EIDM.

 

Setting up an EIDM account to access a solo practitioner’s QRUR
  • A solo practitioner is defined as a TIN with only 1 EP, as identified by a NPI, that bills under the TIN.
  • To access a solo practitioner's QRUR, one person must first sign up for an EIDM account with the Individual Practitioner role.
    • If additional persons are needed to access the solo practitioner’s QRUR, then they can also request the Individual Practitioner role or the Individual Practitioner Representative role in EIDM.
  • If you do not have an IACS or EIDM account, then follow the instructions provided here to sign up for an EIDM account with the correct role.
  • If you already have an EIDM account, then follow the instructions provided here to sign up for the correct role in EIDM.
