2016 PQRS Measures Relevant to Physical Medicine

Physiatrists have 1 registry option 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 20 patients - the majority of which must be Medicare Part B.
  2. 9 PQRS measures across 3 domains or if less than 9 measures, a provider will need to pass the MAV. To pass the MAV, the provider needs to make sure that if a measure belongs to a PQRS cluster, all other measures inside that cluster are also reported. For example, when reporting measure #154, the provider also needs to report measure #155. Some examples of physiatry measures:
