With summer now in full swing, I’m going through my summer attire and have found myself questioning my fashion style. I feel like it’s time to trade in my classic look for something more stylish!
I see a similar trend when I talk with clients about PQRS reporting—they are looking to revamp their reporting style. With more providers subject to penalties under both the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and the Value-Based Payment Modifier (V-BPM) programs, there is more riding on quality reporting—so it is important to ensure you are dressed for success.
Why building the right quality reporting “wardrobe” is important to your revenue:
If not reporting PQRS in 2015:
- All PQRS-eligible providers are subject to a 2% PQRS penalty in 2017 and
- An additional Value-Based Payment Modifier penalty based on group size:
- 2% for Solo practitioners and groups of 2-9 providers
- 4% for groups of 10 or more providers
If reporting PQRS in 2015, practices will be evaluated on quality and cost:
- Solo practitioners and groups of 2-9 PQRS-eligible providers could see a potential increase of up to 2% in 2017
- Groups of 10 or more providers could receive between a 4% penalty and a 4% incentive
Select the option that’s the best style and fit for you from the list below:
