FAQ

If a provider reports on clinical quality measures (CQMs) using PQRS, do they also have to report on CQMs via attestation to meet the EHR Incentive Program requirements?

No. Individual EPs and PQRS group practices, who are also eligible for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, have the opportunity to submit their CQMs electronically through the PQRS EHR reporting option to fulfill the CQM requirements for both PQRS and the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. EPs and PQRS group practices may satisfactorily report 12 months of CQM data to meet the reporting requirement for both PQRS and the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. Please note: CQM reporting is only one component of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program; EPs and PQRS group practices must still meet the additional components of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program.
