2015 is the performance year for multiple Medicare quality reporting program penalties scheduled to take effect in 2017. When the PQRS, VBPM and Meaningful Use penalties are combined, the actions or inactions of EPs in 2015 could result in a cumulative 11% cut to their 2017 Medicare payments. The program requirements are complex. MGMA continues to advocate for the Administration and Congress to ease the financial and administrative burdens.
