Informal Review Request Period for the 2017 Value Modifier Open Now

From CMS

The 2015 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) were released on September 26, 2016. The 2015 Annual QRURs show how physician groups and physician solo practitioners performed in 2015 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2017 Value Modifier as well as their 2017 Value Modifier payment adjustment. Access and review your 2015 Annual QRUR now to determine whether you are subject to the 2017 Value Modifier payment adjustment.

 

An Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account with the appropriate role is required for groups and solo practitioners to obtain their 2015 Annual QRURs. The How to Obtain a QRUR webpagecontains instructions for signing up for the appropriate role in EIDM and instructions for accessing the QRUR.
Physician groups or physician solo practitioners may request an informal review of perceived errors in their 2017 Value Modifier calculation during the informal review period of September 26, 2016 through November 30, 2016 at 11:59 pm at Eastern Time. Additional information about the 2015 Annual QRURs and how to request an informal review is available on the 2015 QRUR and 2017 Value Modifier webpage.
