Today I am reviewing the rules for screening patients for depression. There is something called "PQRS" - it's for physicians and other providers to report on the services they provide to Medicare beneficiaries.  I don't know if the link below will show up, but this is what Medicare has to say about it.

Bottom line: It's good for healthcare providers to assess patients for depression. We can do more when we know there is a problem.
