2012 eRx Deadline Approaches
As a final reminder to our chronic pain physicians, June 30, 2012 is a key date in the Medicare E-Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program. It acts as a dual deadline for avoiding the 1.5% reduction in your total Medicare allowable payment for 2013, since by this date you must have either:
Again, you are not subject to the 2013 eRx penalty if your Medicare allowable for office/outpatient E/M services (codes 99201-99215) accounts for less than 10% of your TOTAL Medicare allowable for DOS Jan 1-Jun 30, 2012. If such is the case, then you would not have to submit any eRx, G-code or hardship request to avoid the 2013 penalty. Your exemption from the penalty is automatic. The problem is that you won’t officially know whether you’ve met the 10% threshold until later this year when the official CMS calculation is conducted, making it difficult to determine where you stand by the June 30 deadline.
