Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI)

April 3, 2011

PQRI continues in 2011.  Physical Therapists who successfully report will receive a 1.0% bonus.  Medicare has made it clear that this bonus will diminish in years to come and that a penalty will be applied to those who do not participate.  Please advise us if you will be newly participating in the program so that we can assist you in set up and monitoring of initial claims submitted.  The threshold for successful participation was also reduced from 80% to 50% for 2011.
