2016 PQRS Measures Relevant to Family Practice

Family and General Practitioners have 2 registry options for reporting PQRS:

  1. Measures groups - it is easier for a provider to report 2016 PQRS with measures groups because a provider only needs to report a minimum 20 eligible patient sample. The majority of the sample must be traditional Medicare.
  2. 9 PQRS measures across 3 domains or if less than 9 measures, a provider will need to pass the MAV. The MAV requires that you report all measures contained within a designated MAV Cluster.  For example, if a provider reports measure #48, they must also report measure #50 (Urinary Incontinence Care Cluster).  In addition, a cross-cutting measure must be reported in order to pass the MAV.  Some examples of Family Practice measures (with domain names):
