How to Register to Select your PQRS Group Reporting Option for 2013
Value-Based Payment Modifier – Physician Feedback Program

This National Provider Call is a walk through the Physician Value (PV) - Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Registration System. The PV-PQRS Registration System is a new application to serve the Physician Value Modifier and PQRS programs. The PV-PQRS Registration system will allow: (1) physician group practices to select their CY 2013 PQRS Group Reporting Mechanism, and if the group has 100 or more eligible professionals, elect quality tiering to calculate their CY 2015 Value-based Payment Modifier; and (2) individual eligible professionals to select the CMS-calculated Administrative Claims reporting mechanism for CY 2013 in order to avoid the PQRS negative payment adjustment in CY 2015. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. The PV-PQRS Registration System will be open from July 15, 2013 to October 15, 2013.

Please note that while this call is scheduled for 60 minutes. CMS experts will be available to stay on the line for an additional 30 minutes to take outstanding questions, should they exist, at the end of the scheduled call time. Participants can remain on the line until the conclusion of the call or refer to the call transcript and audio recording (to be posted 7-10 business days after the call) if they are unable to participate beyond the 60 minute scheduled duration.
