2016 PQRS Feedback Report Access Ends December 31

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that 2016 PQRS Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) and Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Feedback Reports will be available for review only until December 31, 2018, when the federal program officially ends.

The PQRS program was sunset after 2016, with the final year’s participation affecting 2018 payment adjustments. PQRS performance will cease to affect payment adjustments after 2018. The Quality Payment Program (QPP) and Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) will take its place for 2019 payments and beyond.

If you need to access your 2016 reports for any reason, you can visit https://portal.cms.gov and log in using your Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account. For instructions on how to create an EIDM account and access your reports, visit CMS’ How to Obtain a QRUR page. Again, these reports will not be accessible after December 31, 2018.
