Numerator (Submission Criteria 1)

Patient visits that included a documented plan of care to address pain

Numerator Instructions:

A documented plan of care may include: use of opioids, nonopioid analgesics, psychological support, patient and/or family education, referral to a pain clinic, or reassessment of pain at an appropriate time interval.

Numerator Options:

Performance Met: Plan of care to address pain documented (0521F)

OR

Performance Not Met: Plan of care for pain not documented, reason not otherwise specified (0521F with 8P)

 

OR

 

Submission Criteria 2: All visits for patients, regardless of age, with a diagnosis of cancer currently receiving radiation therapy who report having pain

Denominator (Submission Criteria 2)

All visits for patients, regardless of age, with a diagnosis of cancer currently receiving radiation therapy who report having pain

DENOMINATOR NOTE: For the reporting purposes of this measure, in instances where CPT code 77427 is reported, the billing date, which may or may not be the same date as the face-to-face or telehealth encounter with the physician, should be used to pull the appropriate patient population into the denominator. It is expected, though, that the numerator criteria would be performed at the time of the actual face-to-face or telehealth encounter during the series of treatments.

Denominator Criteria (Eligible Cases) 2:

All eligible instances when pain severity quantified; pain present (1125F) is submitted in the numerator for Measure #143

AND

Patient procedure during the performance period (CPT) – Procedure codes: 77427, 77431, 77432, 77435

 

Numerator (Submission Criteria 2)

Patient visits that included a documented plan of care to address pain

Numerator Instructions:

A documented plan of care may include: use of opioids, nonopioid analgesics, psychological support, patient and/or family education, referral to a pain clinic, or reassessment of pain at an appropriate time interval.

Numerator Options:

Performance Met: Plan of care to address pain documented (0521F)

OR

Performance Not Met: Plan of care for pain not documented, reason not otherwise specified (0521F with 8P)

 

Rationale

Inadequate cancer pain management is widely prevalent, harmful to the patient and costly.

 

Clinical Recommendation Statements

If the Pain Rating Scale score is above 0, a comprehensive pain assessment is initiated. (NCCN, 2011)

For management of cancer related pain in adults, the algorithm distinguishes three levels of pain intensity, based on a 0-10 numerical value obtained using numerical or the pictorial rating scale (with 0 being no pain to 10 being the worst pain). The three levels of pain intensity listed in the algorithm are mild pain (1-3); moderate pain (4-6); and severe pain (7-10). (NCCN, 2011)

The [NCCN] guidelines acknowledge the range of complex decisions faced in caring for these patients. As a result, they provide dosing guidelines for opioids, non-opioid analgesics, and adjuvant analgesics. They also provide specific suggestions for titrating and rotating opioids, escalation of opioid dosage, management of opioid adverse effects, and when and how to proceed to other techniques/interventions for the management of cancer pain. (NCCN, 2011)

Treatment must be individualized based on clinical circumstances and patient wishes, with the goal of maximizing function and quality of life. (NCCN, 2011)

Clinicians must respond to pain reports in a manner appropriate to the type of pain (e.g., acute vs. chronic) and setting (e.g., inpatient vs. outpatient)… Appropriate responses may not always include more opioids but rather more detailed assessments, use of nonopioid analgesics or techniques, or non-pharmacologic interventions (e.g., education, relaxation, and use of heat or cold). (APS, 2005)
