The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Friday issued guidance for critical access hospitals and rural health centers with respect to the Physician Quality Reporting System 2013 reporting year and 2015 payment adjustment. Physicians and other eligible professionals must report certain quality data to the PQRS program to avoid a 1.5% payment reduction under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule in 2015.
