If you are eligible to participate in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and you don’t satisfactorily report data on quality measures from the 2016 program year, you may be subject to a 2% payment adjustment of your Physician Fee Schedule charges beginning in 2018.
The AOA CAP for PQRS registry, AOA’s standalone registry, is no longer available. However, AOA members can receive a discount on PQRSWizard, a PQRS Qualified Registry.
The cost to participate in the PQRSWizard is $199 for AOA members/$299 for nonmembers. The PQRSWizard registry closes March 17, 2017, at 5 p.m. ET. All data for the 2016 reporting period must be submitted by that deadline.
