Part 2: What CAP Members Need to Know about 2013 PQRS Changes
Thurs., Nov. 15, 3:00–4:30 PM Eastern Time
Next year’s CMS Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) includes numerous changes for all providers, including pathologists. Most notably, pathologists who participate successfully in 2013 will be incentivized, while those participating unsuccessfully (or not participating) will be penalized in 2015.

Part 2 in this two-part Webinar series will focus on how PQRS changes—including new group reporting options—and the implementation of the value-based modifier beginning next year will impact pathologists. CAP leaders will review these changes, and also address questions following their presentations.
