PQRS GPRO Registration

02/12/2015 Updates:

Between April 1, 2015 and June 30, 2015, group practices will be able to register to participate in the 2015 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) as a group. Authorized representatives of group practices will be able to select a PQRS GPRO reporting mechanism for 2015 in the Physician Value-Physician Quality Reporting System (PV-PQRS) Registration System during this period. More information will be available on this website prior to the beginning of the registration period.

Immediate Action Needed for Groups with 10 or More Eligible Professionals to Avoid the Automatic 2016 Value-Based Payment Modifier Downward Payment Adjustment

In order to avoid an automatic negative two percent (“-2.0%”) Value Modifier payment adjustment in 2016, eligible professionals (EPs) in groups with 10 or more EPs MUST participate in the PQRS and satisfy reporting requirements as a group or as individuals in 2014. The deadline for groups to register to participate in the PQRS GPRO as a group in 2014 has passed. Therefore, in order to avoid the automatic "-2.0%" Value Modifier payment adjustment in 2016, groups with 10 or more EPs that did not register to participate in the PQRS GPRO in 2014, must ensure that at least 50% of the EPs in the group participate in the PQRS as individuals in 2014 and meet the satisfactory reporting criteria as individuals via a qualified PQRS registry, or EHR (or in lieu of satisfactory reporting, satisfactorily participate in a Qualified clinical data registry) to avoid the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment. Information on how EPs in a group can participate in the PQRS as individuals in order to avoid the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment and the CY 2016 Value Modifier payment adjustment can be found in the “Downloads” section.
