Practice Perspectives


During 2014, clinical social workers who are Medicare providers should demonstrate quality care by reporting the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) or receive a two percent penalty in 2016 for not using PQRS. The penalty increases each year PQRS is not used. PQRS identifies measures that may be used by clinical social workers to improve the quality of care provided to Medicare beneficiaries.
