Q&A: Physician Quality Reporting Initiative

Compliance Monitor, April 1, 2009

Q: If I have questions regarding the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI), whom should I contact?

A: The first step is to review the information on the CMS Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) Web site. As new information, tools, and materials become available to support eligible professionals’ satisfactory participation in PQRI, these materials will be broadly announced and disseminated via familiar mechanisms, including but not limited to the PQRI section of the CMS Web site. This Web site is the primary source for all publicly available information and CMS-supported educational and implementation support materials for PQRI.

You may also call your carrier or A/B MAC. The Provider Call Center Toll-Free Numbers Directory offers information on how to contact the appropriate provider call center and is available for download at the CMS Web site.
 
This question and answer appear on the Frequently Asked Questions section of the CMS Web site.
