For every physician that bills Medicare Part B, CMS has created a performance report called the Quality Resource Use Report (QRUR). This report shows their interpretation of your relative cost of all care compared with your peers for the patients you see and bill Medicare Part B. The most recently available data is the 2016 QRUR. This report was used to calculate the 2018 Value Modifier that will impact your Medicare reimbursements. We are exciting to announce a free web based education opportunity for you on the evening of Wednesday, November 14, 2017 from 7- 8 pm.
This educational session will be a presentation on interpreting your Quality Resource Use Report (QRUR). As the Medicare Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization, we are contacted by CMS to provide this free technical assistance. In preparation for the session, we suggest that you log into the CMS portal and download your report to have on hand during the call. If you have not previously set up the specific EIDM account to access this report you can follow this guide at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-ServicePayment/PhysicianFeedbackProgram/Downloads/2016-QRUR-Guide.pdf .
This guide will walk you through how to set up and EIDM account (page 3) and how to download the report. If you do not have an EIDM Account, please allow 2 weeks to go through this process prior to the call. It will be very helpful for you to have your report available when you attend the webinar as we walk you through each of the tables in the report.
