ePrescribing deadline approaching
The Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRX) incentive program deadline is approaching for both individual eligible professionals (EPs) and group practices participating in the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO). If you are an EP or an eRX GPRO participant you must successfully report as an electronic prescriber before June 30, 2013 or you will see a 2 percent payment adjustment in 2014 for professional services covered under Medicare Part B's Physician Schedule (PFS). The 2013 eRx incentive program 6-month reporting period (January 1, 2013 to June 30, 2013) is the final reporting period available to you if you wish to avoid the 2014 eRx payment adjustment.
Additional resources on the 2014 payment adjustment is available, including a resource for the 2013 eRX incentive program. Questions regarding the program are encouraged to contact the QualityNet Help Desk at 866.288.8912 or by email at email@example.com.
