Physician groups wishing to participate in the 2015 Physician Quality Reporting System Group Practice Reporting Option must register by June 30. CMS will transition PQRS to its Enterprise Identity Management System on July 13, and strongly encourages groups intending to use the GPRO for PQRS reporting to register by June 26 to ensure a smooth transition. Satisfactorily reporting via PQRS GPRO is one way for groups of two or more eligible professionals to avoid automatic payment reductions of 2% for PQRS and 4% for the Value-Based Payment Modifier under the physician fee schedule. Group practices that meet PQRS reporting requirements also qualify for incentive payments under the value modifier. Group practices that choose not to register for the GPRO must ensure that at least half of their EPs meet PQRS reporting requirements for individual EPs to avoid the 2017 payment reductions and qualify for incentives.
