Here we go, CMS will begin to apply a negative payment adjustment to EP’s (Eligible Professionals) that did not participate and satisfactorily report Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) in 2014. Remember, the program participation during a calendar year will affect your payments in two years. Therefore; if you do to successfully report in the year 2015 you will be penalized in 2017.  

If you feel you may have been incorrectly assessed you may request an informal review. You will need to submit them electronically via Quality Reporting Communication Support Page (CSP).

You can also visit the 2014 PQRS Incentive Eligibility & 2016 Negative Payment Adjustment - Informal Review made simple, by visiting the Analysis and Payment section of the PQRS website.
