We call it “Informal Review Season”. You could also call it “the Nightmare Vaguely Before Christmas” for
providers who bill Medicare Part B services. The 2015 PQRS Informal Review season (this year September 26th through November 30th) is that most wonderful time of the year when practitioners and practice administrators nervously await the release of feedback reports in September. Instead of children wondering whether or not they’ve made Santa’s list, you’ve got providers and practitioners feverishly paging through their QRURs to see exactly how naughty or nice they are, according to CMS. (Note: Documents released in the fall of 2016 pertain to the 2015 PQRS or VBM reporting period).
