PQRS is a quality reporting program for Medicare. Physicians and non-physician clinicians who participate in the PQRS program send data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on quality measures for Medicare Part B fee-for-service beneficiaries.
Non-physician clinicians who bill Medicare under their own NPI are considered eligible professionals for PQRS. See here for more information about QRS for non-physician clinicians.
PQRS is part of Medicare’s value-based payment program that applies to all physicians and other providers treating Medicare patients. Physicians who do not successfully report PQRS measures may be subject to a payment adjustment.
PQRS requirements are published in the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule each year. For information on AAD policy and advocacy efforts related to Medicare see the practice and advocacy resource page.
