Practice Perspectives


The Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 identifies clinical social workers as eligible professionals to participate in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). Participating in PQRS 2014 increases clinical social workers’ practice revenue by .5 percent. In addition, successful reporting of PQRS allows clinical social workers to avoid a two percent penalty in 2016 for not using measures in 2014.
