Abstract

Each year the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) make changes to the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS - formally PQRI), and the Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Programs that will affect practitioners who are paid under Medicare Part B. Interpreting all of the new guidelines can be tricky. This session will provide an overview of the programs, the impact of the programs on surgeons, and provide further information on how to navigate the programs so that your reimbursements are accurate.
