Instructions for Self-Audit for ASA Quality Reporting

The document provides step-by-step instructions and examples to help practices prepare for accurate reporting of their providers’ information via the QCDR/QR. Reporting is based on the provider NPI and the practice TIN for each case. The Provider List in NACOR must accurately reflect each NPI/TIN combination. We recommend monthly maintenance of the Provider List. Changes to the Provider List must be completed by February 15, 2018. All providers are defaulted to YES for reporting to CMS; practices will need to opt out (see instructions) if they do not want to report for a specific provider(s).
