From CMS: 2013 PQRS, eRx Incentive Program feedback reports now available

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is pleased to announce that the 2013 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and 2013 Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program feedback reports are now available for eligible professionals who submitted quality data on Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Part B services between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.

Individual eligible professionals who submitted 2013 PQRS data, or individual eligible professionals and group practices who submitted 2013 eRx data, can retrieve their 2013 Feedback Reports through two methods:

  • National Provider Identifier (NPI)-level reports: These reports can be requested through CMS’s Communication Support Page by creating a NPI-level feedback report request. The report will be sent electronically to the email address provided in the request within two to four weeks.
  • Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)-level reports: These reports contain NPI level detail and are available for download on the Physician and Other Health Care Professionals Quality Reporting Portal. To access a TIN-level report on the Portal, you must have an Individuals Authorized to Access CMS Computer Services (IACS) account. To request an IACS account in order to access the portal, check out the IACS Quick References Guides.

Group practices that participated in the 2013 PQRS Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) can access PQRS feedback through the 2013 Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs), which are now available. The 2013 QRURs can be accessed by authorized representatives of groups and solo practitioners at https://portal.cms.gov using a valid Individuals Authorized Access to the CMS Computer Services (IACS) User ID and password. For more information on the QRURs and Value Modifier, please access the Physician Feedback Program/Value-Based Modifier website.
