I feel like that guy with the green dollar bill suit but there's another incentive program from CMS that can increase your CMS payments by 0.5%. It's called the PQRS MOC program and has to do with your board.

http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/PQRS/Downloads/2013_MOCP_IncentiveMadeSimple_041813.pdf

Unfortunately, unlike the ABA, the ABPMR is not yet certified so anyone who is ABPMR boarded can not yet participate. I've contacted the ABPMR to try and get them to participate and become certified as it directly impacts us.

If you're interested in helping to lobby the ABPMR, you can send an email to Brittaney kindly asking the ABPMR to please become certified in the PQRS MOC program. Her email is: [email protected]

FYI, the following programs can earn you extra funds:

1. Meaningful use
2. PQRS
3. PQRS MOC

Please add if you know others.
