Sturtevant, WI (PRWEB) March 01, 2014
Rehab Management Solutions (RMS), a Physical Therapist owned-and-operated company that grows private practices through proven operations and systems, is excited to offer a web-based educational course on the Medicare Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) on March 18, 2014 (12:15pm-1:15pmCST) to Physical and Occupational Therapists nationally. Providers who do not report successfully may be subject to a payment penalty. The course will help relieve confusion in reporting PQRS measures and help therapists avoid such fee schedule adjustments.
PQRS was established to assess and enhance the quality of health care. Although not mandatory until 2015, physical and occupational therapists who successfully report PQRS measures now may receive up to a 0.5% bonus payment. However, if reporting is unsatisfactory from January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014, therapists will be subject to a 2.0% adjustment in the 2016 fee schedule amounts. RMS’ course will offer education on how to properly implement, bill and internally audit PQRS reporting to meet the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services requirements. For those who already report PQRS measures satisfactorily, the web event will also cover the updated 2014 measures.
Registration for the live web event is available at http://www.rehabmgtsolutions.com/pqrs-2014. If a therapist is unable to attend live, a recorded version will also be offered at a later date. Cost of the course is $69.95. Continuing education credit for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants has been submitted for approval in several states.
For additional PQRS resources, RMS also offers a set of PQRS documentation tools, which includes a compliant charge ticket and measure charts. These new updated forms, with PQRS 2014 measures, are now available for purchase online at http://www.rehabmgtsolutions.com/pqrs.
