Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)

The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), part of Medicare's value-based payment program, is a pay-for quality reporting program that encourages individual eligible professionals (EPs) and group practices to report information on the quality of care to Medicare. Physicians and non-physician clinicians that participate in the PQRS program send their quality measures data to CMS for Medicare Part B fee-for-service beneficiaries. 

Beginning March 2016, members can purchase the PQRS submission option and report via the Academy's clinical data registry, DataDerm. Learn more.

PQRS requirements are published in the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule each year. For information on AAD policy and advocacy efforts related to Medicare, see the Advocacy section of the website.
