The deadline for providers to question Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)-related penalty notices they may have received has been extended, CMS announces.

Instead of November 23, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will accept “informal review” requests until midnight on Friday, December 11, according to an announcement from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

According to the APTA announcement, it is working with CMS to ensure that physical therapists are not unduly penalized for 2014 PQRS performance.
