For 2016 PQRS, what happens if the eligible professional (EP) chooses a different reporting mechanism because they believe they will be unsuccessful in submitting a measures group via registry due to the ICD-10-CM update, but still fail and would they avoid the payment adjustment in this scenario?

EPs reporting via registry are allowed to change their reporting method for 2016 PQRS reporting if they believe they will be unable to satisfactorily report. CMS recommends EPs collaborate with their registry in order to determine how best to satisfactorily report.
