STEP 1: Are you eligible for the PQRS Incentive Program?
STEP 2: Register for an individual Authorized Access for CMS Computer Services (IACS) account, if you do not already have one
STEP 4: Determine if you are eligible to use the EHR-based method to report PQRS
STEP 5: If you are not eligible for EHR-based reporting, select either the Registry-based or Claims-based reporting method
- Registry Reporting: You may be able to report through a Qualified Registry. A listing of qualified registries for 2012 will be available later this year. The qualified registries submit data to Medicare on behalf of the provider after the close of the reporting period. If you elect registry reporting, contact your registry for additional instructions.
- Claims Reporting: With Claims reporting, specific PQRS codes (called “Quality Data Codes, or QDCs”) must be reported on each Medicare Part B PFS eligible claim at the time it is submitted for payment.
