Physicians in groups of all sizes and physician solo practitioners are subject to the Value Modifier in 2017, based on performance in 2015. Under the Value Modifier, these physicians and groups must meet the criteria to avoid the downward payment adjustment under PQRS in order to avoid an additional automatic downward adjustment under the Value Modifier and qualify for adjustments based on their quality performance. Satisfactorily reporting via a PQRS GPRO is one of the ways groups can avoid automatic downward adjustments and qualify for performance-based payment incentives under the Value Modifier. See What Physicians Need to do in 2015 for the 2017 VM on the Value Modifier web page for more information.
Groups can participate in the PQRS program for the 2015 performance period by selecting one of the GPRO reporting mechanisms between April 1, 2015, and June 30, 2015, at 11:59pm ET:
Physician groups with 2 or more EPs that choose not to register, must ensure that at least 50% of the EPs in the group meet the criteria to avoid the 2017 PQRS payment adjustment as individuals in order for the group to avoid the automatic 2017 Value Modifier downward payment adjustment (-2.0% or -4.0% depending on the group’s size).
The Registration System can be accessed using a valid Individuals Authorized Access to the CMS Computer Services (IACS) account. CMS strongly encourage groups to obtain an IACS account and register by June 26, since registration will close on June 30, 2015. CMS will be transitioning to a new Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) system in the upcoming months; therefore, all registrations must be received before the deadline. Stay tuned for more information and resources in the coming weeks and months about the EIDM. In the meantime, please ensure that your IACS account is active, current, and you’re able to log in. This will help ensure a smoother transition to EIDM. Instructions for obtaining an IACS account with the correct role are provided on the PQRS GPRO Registration web page. Instructions for registering to participate in the 2015 PQRS GPRO are provided in the 2015 PQRS GPRO Registration Guide.
