PQRS group practice reporting option now open

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has announced that eligible professionals are now able to register for the group practice reporting option.

Registration for the 2014 PQRS program will be open until Sept. 30.

Group practices participating in GPRO that satisfactorily report data are eligible for a 0.5 percent incentive payment and will avoid the -2 percent 2016 PQRS payment penalty.

To earn the incentive payment and avoid the penalty, group practices may register via:

•    A qualified PQRS registry
•    Directly from EHR using certified EHR technology
•    CEHRT via data submission vendor

Groups with 25 or more eligible professionals may also participate via:

•    Web interface (reporting CG CAHPs also required for groups of 100 or more)
•    CG CAHPS via CMS-certified survey vendor
