CMS E-Prescribing Incentives Still Available

It isn’t too late to start participating in the eRx Incentive Program to potentially qualify to receive a full-year incentive payment. Eligible health care professionals may begin reporting eRx at any time throughout the 2010 program year of January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010, to be incentive eligible.  

 For 2010, eligible professionals who successfully report the eRx measure will become eligible to receive an eRx incentive equal to 2 percent of their total Medicare Part B Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) allowed charges for services performed during the reporting period. Beginning in 2012, eligible professionals who are not successful electronic prescribers will be subject to a PFS payment adjustment or penalty.
