Are registries able to submit National Provider Identifiers (NPIs) for group practices participating via the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) for the 2016 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)?

For 2014 PQRS GPRO registry submission, if a registry submits xml data on behalf of a group practice and the 10-digit NPI field is populated with the group NPI, the system will reject the information. NPI error edit #1127 will display to indicate this rejection. See the ‚ÄúRegistry Error Edit Specifications‚ÄĚ at for additional information.
