Background

The Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) is available for practices of 2 or more providers. For the 2016 Physicians Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Program Group Practices report through Individual Measures. There are 198 Individual Measures from which to choose. Individual Measures are based only on Medicare Part B Fee-For-Service patients seen by the Group Practice during the 2016 calendar year.

Reporting through GPRO

  • Register by June 30, 2016 with CMS to report as Group
