The Medicare Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is a reporting program that uses a combination of incentive payments and payment reductions to promote reporting of quality information by eligible professionals.
Up until now, this program has been voluntary and physicians have received bonuses for participating. That's about to change. Failure to participate now means physicians could face significant penalties in 2015 and beyond.
