Quality Reporting System

This Product is Not Available.
Product Code: MPQRS14

Dermatologists and their non-physician clinicians can report PQRS quality measures to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with the Academy's Quality Reporting System (QRS).

There are five dermatology-specific measures - three related to melanoma, one biopsy follow-up measure, and a new measure related to psoriasis. The AAD also supports a list of eight additional dermatology applicable measures to choose from that can be reported through QRS.

You can choose to report nine measures to earn a bonus payment of 0.5% of total Medicare Part B allowed charges in 2014 or prefer to report three measures to avoid the 2% payment reduction in 2016.

Members: $249

Non-Physician Clinicians: $249
