The AAN’s Pay-for-Performance Work Group has developed a listserv for neurologists and office staff to share information about a new Medicare program—the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI). The PQRI program begins July 1 and provides an opportunity for physicians to earn a 1.5% bonus on Medicare payments. Members who plan to participate in the voluntary PQRI program can join the listserv to ask questions of their colleagues and get input from others who experience similar challenges. This will also be a resource where members can receive the latest news and alerts about Medicare calls and educational materials.
Participation is limited to AAN members. To join the listserv, members should send an email with their name and preferred email address to Nicole Johns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
