Decide whether your practice will report physician quality reporting system (PQRS) measures as a group or individually by Sept. 30. You’ll have to register to use the group practice reporting option (GPRO) by that date if your practice wants to report as a group or, if your group has at least 10 providers, you’ll risk at least a 2% cut to 2016 payments.
Check your state scope of practice if your non-physician practitioners (NPPs) are currently able to write prescriptions for pain medications such as OxyContin to Vicodin and other drugs that contain hydrocodone.
