  • Physician Quality Reporting System Update from Joy Newby

    February 25, 2015

    Like Dorothy following the Yellow Brick Road and worried about “Lions and Tigers and Bears,” in 2015, physicians are following the Red Brick Road also known as Payment Adjustments.

    First Congress offered carrots, now as payment reductions begin in 2015, some physicians are feeling the stick(s). Before beginning the discussion of the new payment adjustments, we must remember that Medicare payments continue to be reduced by 2% due to Sequestration. At this time, we can expect this reduction to continue on all Medicare payments through CY 2022.
