On Tuesday, September 26, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. ET, CMS will host a call on Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) downward payment adjustments, PQRS feedback reports, and the informal review process for program year 2016 results and 2018 payment adjustment determinations.
Note: 2016 was the last program year for PQRS. PQRS transitioned to the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) under the Quality Payment Program. The final data submission timeframe for reporting 2016 PQRS quality data to avoid the 2018 PQRS downward payment adjustment was January through March 2017.
