I am a participating eligible professional (EP) reporting on Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) measures, should I report on patients for professional services (i.e., procedures) performed in ambulatory surgery facilities ASCs)?

Yes. Participating EPs who bill under Medicare Part B for services provided at ASCs are included in PQRS. Applicable measures should be reported. However, ASC facility charges with "Type of Service (TOS) = F" billed separately by the facility under the ASC fee schedule are not included in PQRS. A list of EPs can be found on the PQRS How to Get Started webpage.
