American Board of Optometry Again “Fully Qualified” by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for 2012

American Board of Optometry Again “Fully Qualified” by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for 2012

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the American Board of Optometry (ABO) has qualified for purposes of the 2012 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program Incentive.  The ABO successfully completed the vetting process to ensure the ABO MOC program meets participation requirements.

The ABO was one of only seven entities that qualified during the launch of this program in 2011, allowing ABO Diplomates to be among an elite few health care professionals to take advantage of this incentive.  For 2012, physicians will again have the opportunity to earn the PQRS incentive, as well as an additional incentive of 0.5 percent by participating in additional activities of a qualified MOC program including a practice assessment module and patient experience of care survey.
