    I am not currently a Medac billing client.  May I take advance of this solution?

    Medac’s solution is available to any interested Anesthesiologist or Chronic Pain Physician, clients and non-clients alike.

    How much can I be paid if I take advantage of this technology and how do I get started?

    As you may already know, eligible providers can earn up to $44K in incentive payments from Medicare for becoming Meaningful Users of EHR technology by 2015.  Fortunately, for calendar year 2012, eligible providers needed to only report on any continuous 90-day period within the first payment year (2012).  However, providers should be aware that October 3, 2012 was the deadline for EPs to begin their 90-day reporting period for 2012.  Therefore, many of you may have already missed the deadline to receive the full 4 year payment of $44k.  Those providers that did not register and did not begin reporting prior to October 3rd, 2012, may earn a maximum of $39K. Unfortunately, for all subsequent years, the reporting period encompasses the entire calendar year.
