About the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)
The Physician Quality Reporting System (or PQRS) is a reporting program established by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that uses a combination of incentive payments and payment adjustments to promote reporting of quality information by eligible health care professionals. The PQRS program provides an incentive payment to practices with eligible professionals (identified on claims by their individual National Provider Identifier [NPI] and Tax Identification Number [TIN]) who satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) services furnished to Medicare Part B Fee-for-Service (FFS) beneficiaries. Beginning in 2015, the PQRS program also applies a payment adjustment to eligible professionals who do not satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered professional services.
