What is PQRI?

CMS created the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI), which provides a financial incentive for physicians to participate in a voluntary quality reporting program. Physicians who qualify and properly report their PQRI data will earn an incentive.

Unfortunately, providers have had a difficult time successfully reporting their PQRI measurements due to the number of steps in the qualification process, the importance of billing the codes in a very specific manner and the requirement that the PQRI codes are billed simultaneously with the corresponding standard code.

Adding to the difficulty is the requirement that PQRI codes are billed at a zero dollar amount, a requirement that many billing systems cannot handle but which is no problem for Iridium Suite.
