PQRS: Deadline to Register for the Group Practice Reporting Option
Group practices with two or more eligible professionals interested in participating in the 2016 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program year under the group practice reporting option (GPRO) must register by June 30, 2016.
Solo physicians and group practices who get paid under or based on the Medicare Part B Physician Fee Schedule must comply with quality reporting requirements in 2016 to avoid Medicare pay cuts in 2018.

Group practices who previously reported under the GPRO and plan on reporting PQRS data again via GPRO must register every year. This registration process should be completed as soon as possible to avoid last-minute delays before the deadline.
