AASM Weekly Update
Friday, July 2, 2010
This week CMS reminded physicians that it is not too late to start participating in the 2010 Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) and potentially qualify to receive incentive payments. A new six month reporting period begins July 1, 2010. For 2010, eligible professionals who satisfactorily report PQRI measures for the 6-month reporting period will become eligible to receive a PQRI incentive equal to 2.0 percent of their total Medicare Part B allowed charges for services performed during the reporting period.
