Coding Cues: Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) 2008

You'll find several links to helpful resources at the CMS website ( http://www.cms.hhs.gov/pqri) and on the websites of local carriers. In addition, many medical societies publish lists of the ICD-9, CPT, and Category II codes used in reporting measures for the specialties they represent.
