Physical Therapy and PQRS in 2016: How To Report Successfully (Nov 19)

Physical Therapists who bill Medicare for outpatient physical therapy services in private practice settings (using the 1500 claim form or 837-P) must participate successfully in the physician quality reporting system (PQRS) in 2016 in order to avoid a 2% reduction in payment from Medicare in 2018. Starting in 2019 CMS will implement a new quality reporting system, the merit-based incentive system (MIPS).
