• Report a numerator option on all measures within the IBD Measures Group for each
patient within the eligible professional’s patient sample. • Instructions for qualifying numerator option reporting for each of the measures within the IBD Measures Group are displayed on the next several pages. The following composite G- code has been created for registry only measures groups for use by registries that utilize claims data. This composite G-code may be reported in lieu of the individual quality-data codes for each of the measures within the group, if all quality actions for the patient have been performed for all the measures within the group. However, it is not necessary to submit the following composite G-code for registry-based submissions.
Composite G-code G8758: Al quality actions for the applicable measures in the
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Measures Group have been performed for this patient • To report satisfactorily the IBD Measures Group it requires all measures for each patient
within the eligible professional’s patient sample to be reported a minimum of once during • Measures groups containing a measure with a 0% performance rate wil not be counted as satisfactorily reporting the measures group. The recommended clinical quality action must be performed on at least one patient for each measure within the measures group reported by the eligible professional. Performance exclusion quality data codes are not counted in the performance denominator. If the eligible professional submits all performance exclusion quality data codes, the performance rate would be 0/0 and would be considered • When using the 30 Patient Sample Method, report all applicable measures for the 30 unique Medicare Part B FFS patients seen. When using the 80% Patient Sample Method, report all applicable measures on at least 80% of the patient sample for the eligible professional for the 12-month or 6-month reporting period.
