PQRS was established as part of The Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (TRHCA) as a voluntary bonus payment for eligible professionals for reporting PQRS measures to Medicare beginning July 1, 2007. The incentive payments were phased out in 2014, and providers must now report their PQRS measures to avoid penalties starting in 2015.
