NEW 2014 PQRS Informal Review Filing Deadline - Dec 16

Nov 18, 2015 - Dec 16, 2015 08:59 PM


After hearing from CPMA and other stakeholders that the November 23 Informal Review deadline for PQRS 2014 penalties included three days (November 20-22) that the CMS site that providers are to utilize to file their review request would be down for maintenance, CMS has extended the Informal Review period. Individual eligible professionals (EPs), Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) practice sites, PQRS group practices, and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) that believe they have been incorrectly assessed the 2016 PQRS negative payment adjustment now have until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (8:59 p.m.Pacific) on December 16, 2015 to submit an informal review requesting CMS investigate incentive eligibility and/or payment adjustment determination. Again, this is an extension from the previous deadline of December 11, 2015.

CPMA strongly urges members not to delay if they plan to submit a PQRS Informal Review.
