Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)

The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is a reporting program that uses a combination of incentive payments and payment adjustments to promote reporting of quality information by eligible professionals. The program provides an incentive payment to practices with eligible professionals (identified on claims by their individual National Provider Identifier [NPI] and Tax Identification Number [TIN]) who satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) services furnished to Medicare Part B Fee-for-Service (FFS) beneficiaries (including Railroad Retirement Board and Medicare Secondary Payer).

Beginning in 2015, the program may also apply a payment adjustment to eligible professionals who do not satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered professional services.

Complete information about PQRS is available on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) PQRS website. This website serves as the primary and authoritative source for all publicly available information and CMS-supported educational and implementation support materials for PQRS.
