CMS Extends Informal Review Deadline

CMS has announced an extension of the deadline to request an informal review of 2014 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (AQRUR) - it is now December 16, 2015 at 11:59 pm (previously 12/11/15).

Your 2014 AQRUR (Annual Quality and Resource Use Report) shows whether you successfully participated in PQRS in 2014.

If you didn't report PQRS in 2014, you will receive an automatic -2.0% adjustment in your 2016 Medicare payments.

For groups of 10+, 2014 non-participation in PQRS results in an additional automatic -2.0% Value-Based Payment Modifier (VM) adjustment in 2016 Medicare payments.

***Review your 2014 AQRUR to make sure your PQRS status is listed correctly. If you feel that there is an error, you can request an informal CMS review***
