This article is based on Change Request (CR) 6935, which announces availability of a new Medicare manual describing the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) and E-Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Programs. It is important to note that:
- The manual does not establish new requirements for the PQRI and eRx programs; and
- Changes to the programs are described in the annual MPFS legislation.
This new manual, entitled Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) and E-Prescribing (eRx) Medicare Quality Reporting Incentive Programs Manual will be Publication 100-22 and will be available at http://www.cms.gov/manuals/IOM/list.asp on the CMS website.
