The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the submission deadlines for two Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) reporting methods from February 28 to March 20 at 8 p.m., EST.

The two affected reporting methods are:

Submission timeframes for other PQRS reporting methods remain the same. 

CMS also recently extended the meaningful use attestation deadline for the 2014 Medicare EHR Incentive Program reporting period, also to March 20.
