2014 PQRS Toolkit

Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has made some significant changes to the 2014 PQRS program. The PQRS Toolkit was created to help you understand these changes and successfully participate.

Some things to note about 2014 PQRS:

  • This is the last year to possibly earn an incentive (+0.5 %).
  • The data reported in 2014 will be used to assess the 2016 payment adjustment (penalty) for incorrectly or not reporting. The penalty will be -2 %.
  • If you wish to earn the incentive and are using individual measures either through claims or registry reporting, you must report 9 measures (which must include at least 3 different domains of care).
  • If you wish to solely avoid the penalty and are using individual measures either through claims or registry reporting, you must report at least 3 measures. You will not be eligible for an incentive.
  • Additional reporting options have been added.
