means physician quality reporting system. If chiropractors are not using PQRS
code to report chiropractic manipulation to Medicare, a 2% penalty can be
assigned to those claims. In other words, chiropractic doctors can lose up to 2%
of their Medicare reimbursement because they have not submitted PQRS claims.|
Your office can meet PQRS requirements by having a certified EHR or by sending
the G codes with every claim. You do not have to have a certified EHR to avoid
the penalty. You can avoid the penalty by submitting the appropriate G codes
every time you bill for an adjustment.
The ACA has compiled a complete guide to the use of PQRS codes for chiropractic.
