Accessing & Understanding Your QRUR
Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017, from 12-1:30 p.m. (EST)

In the fall of 2017, CMS will make the 2016 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) available to all group and solo practitioners subject to the Value Based Payment Modifier, which is identifiable by Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). The 2016 QRUR shows each TIN how they performed in 2016 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2018 value modifier. Join PHA’s Patty Rose to find out how to access your QRUR, how to interpret and understand how the value modifier will apply to your Medicare Part B payments in 2018, and how to use the information to identify areas to focus improvements as we transition into the Quality Payment Program. Due to the amount of information to be presented, this webinar is scheduled for 90 minutes.
