CMS Announces 2013 PQRS and eRx Incentive Program Feedback Reports are Now Available

Eligible professionals who submitted 2013 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) data and eRx data can now access the Feedback Reports from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These reports contain information on how incentive payments were calculated for those who submitted quality data on Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Part B services between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.

The reports can be retrieved through two methods:

  • National Provider Identifier (NPI)-level reports: These reports can be requested through CMS’ Communication Support Page by creating a NPI-level feedback report request. The report will be sent electronically to the email address provided in the request within two to four weeks.
  • Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) – level reports: These reports contain NPI level detail and are available for download on the Physician and Other Health Care Professionals Quality Reporting Portal. To access a TIN-level report on the Portal, you must have an Individuals Authorized to Access CMS Computer Services (IACS) account.  To request an IACS account in order to access the portal, check out the IACS Quick References Guides.

For more information on interpreting the data in the reports, check out the 2013 PQRS Feedback Report User Guide and/or the 2013 eRx Incentive Program Feedback Report User Guide.
