Members & Publications


August 17, 2016

The 2015 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) feedback reports will be available in September 2016 for individual eligible professionals (EPs) and PQRS group practices. The PQRS feedback reports will provide the final determination on whether or not participants met the PQRS criteria for avoiding the 2017 PQRS negative payment adjustment. Detailed information about the quality data submitted by the provider is also included. 

The 2015 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) will also be available in September 2016 for groups with 2 or more EPs and solo practitioners. Groups and solo practitioners are identified in the QRURs by their TIN. The QRURs are also available for groups and solo practitioners that participated in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, the Pioneer Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Model, or the Comprehensive Primary Care initiative in 2015, and to those TINs consisting only of non-physician EPs.

Learn more about PQRS and stay tuned for the release of the reports.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
