New PQRI Measures

Beginning July 1, 2008, and continuing through September 30, 2008, providers may report three new ophthalmic quality measures as a test for CMS. There is no financial incentive associated with these quality measures. No feedback reports will be issued for these measures. We expect them to be included in future PQRI programs. The applicable quality measures are:



Cataract Comprehensive Preoperative Assessment for Cataract Surgery with Intraocular Lens (IOL) Placement

Measure #T140 AMD Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Counseling on Antioxidant Supplement

Measure #T141 POAG Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma: Reduction of Intraocular Pressure (IOP) by 15% OR Documentation of a Plan of Care

Additional information on reporting these test measures can be found at:
