April 19, 2012 -- Midwest Ophthalmologists First to Receive Quality and Resource Use Reports. Ophthalmologists in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska are the first to receive Medicare Quality and Resource Use Reports, which contain information on the cost and quality of care provided. The reports, based on 2010 Medicare claims data and 2010 Physician Quality Reporting System participation, are for educational purposes only at this time, but they may have bearing on future physician payments. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is seeking feedback from the physician community to define cost and quality measures that will be used to adjust physician payments beginning in 2015. Physicians from the four states can access their confidential reports through the region’s Medicare carrier. The Academy is gathering member feedback on the reports in order to prepare recommendations to CMS. Feedback and questions should be directed to AAO staffer Kelsey Kurth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-737-6662.

An Invitation to You
As you browse through the new KSEPS website, we encourage you to explore the pages that illustrate the special expertise of an ophthalmologist in the delivery of medical and surgical eye care.
