In an era of strict cost containment, psychologists need information and tools to help maximize their reimbursement and payment for services. The Practice Organization is here to help you navigate the healthcare system with numerous pointers for billing and working with private health insurers and Medicare as well as providing guidance like how to complete the CMS-1500 form.
Physician Quality Reporting System
Medicare’s Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) comes to an end on Dec. 31, 2016. Psychologists still have time to report measures for 2016 and avoid a 2 percent penalty in 2018. The APA Practice Organization registry, APAPO PQRSPRO will accept new registrations through mid-January 2017; all reporting data must be submitted to the registry by Jan. 31, 2017.
