Since 2009, most Practice Plan providers have participated in PQRS via claim submission. Beginning in 2014, because we consist of 100 + providers, we elected to participate in the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) via Web Interface submission. Utilizing the GPRO reporting method ensures that all Practice Plan providers will avoid Medicare Part B payment adjustments from both the PQRS program and the Value- Based Payment Modifier (VM) program. (Click on the program link for more information.)
We will continue to submit our PQRS data via GPRO Web interface for 2015 program year. A brief overview of the 2015 Measures and descriptions are listed below. More information on PQRS/ GPRO Web Interface and measure specification information can be found at http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/PQRS/GPRO_Web_Interface.html
