Medicare and that PQRS thing that you have to do by the end of 2013: A Guide for the totally wretched
Warning: boring content intended for Medicare clinicians who file claims. Even a graphic won't spice this up.
Blanket disclaimer: I have no special insights and I did my best to get someone to figure this out for me. I am not liable or responsible in anyway if the information below is wrong, if Medicare cuts your fees or repossesses your first-born.
Medicare and I have a hate-hate relationship, yet still, I remain a non-participating provider and have not opted out. It's a matter of time, and grappling with my own guilt and inertia, but for the moment, I remain under their thumb. Over on Reidbord's Reflections, Dr. Reidbord blogs about why he's opted out.
So there's something called the Medicare Physician Quality Reporting System that needs to be done by the end of 2013 or clinicians will have a 1.5% fee reduction in 2015.
