PQRS 2015 Reminder

The deadline to report PQRS codes for the 2015 calendar year and avoid the penalty is March 31st. As we posted last year, the program has greatly expanded its requirements for claims based submission, making this method very difficult to successfully achieve.

If your EHR product does not offer a PQRS module to aid your submission, we recommend using an approved registry. The Healthcare Billing and Management Association (HBMA) recommends Mingle Analytics ‘PQRS Solutions’ as their registry of choice. Their fee for reporting starts at $275. You can find more details from their website at www.pqrssolutions.com.

Medicare supplies a list of additional registries that have been approved for the 2015 reporting year. You can access this list here: 2015 Qualified Registries
