CMS Extends Informal Review Deadline to Dec. 16

CMS has announced an extension to request informal review of 2014 AQRUR - December 16, 2015 at 11:59 pm. Your 2014 AQRUR (Annual Quality and Resource Use Report) shows whether you successfully participated in PQRS in 2014, so review AQRUR to make sure your PQRS and VM status are listed correctly. If you feel that there is an error, you can request an informal CMS review.

Why bother reviewing? If you are listed as not reporting PQRS in 2014, you will receive:

  • An automatic -2.0% adjustment in your 2016 Medicare payments
  • Groups of 10+ get an additional automatic -2.0% VM adjustment in 2016 payments
