ASCRS/ASOA Develops Updated 2015 PQRS Fact Sheet

ASCRS developed a new 2015 PQRS Factsheet explaining what providers must do in 2015 to avoid the 2017 PQRS penalty. As a reminder, providers can no longer earn a PQRS incentive payment in 2017 based on 2015 reporting.

In addition to the PQRS penalty, providers should be aware that successfully reporting for PQRS in 2015 will also help practitioners avoid a 2%-4% separate Value-Based Payment Modifier (VBPM) penalty. Check out next week’s Washington Watch for the 2015 VBPM Factsheet.

For more information on either the PQRS or VBPM program, please contact Ashley McGlone at 703-591-2220.
