Avoid Medicare PQRS Penalty, Report Measures by Dec 30

Nov 25, 2013 - Jan 01, 2014



Originally voluntary- it no longer is. Incentives and penalties/withholds that will occur in 2015 are based upon your reporting before the end of FY 2013. You still have time to report and avoid penalties!!

There are two approaches, for entirely different reasons. To obtain the 0.5% incentive under Meaningful Use, you must report on at least 50% of all eligible patient encounters on at least three measures for the entire year.

To avoid the 1.5% penalty/withhold, you must report on at least one measure on at least one patient before December 31, 2013.
