Did you know that 2013 was the final program year for participating and reporting in the Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program? The six-month 2014 eRx payment adjustment reporting period, which began on January 1, 2013 and ended on June 30, 2013, was the final reporting period to avoid the 2014 eRx payment adjustment. You do not need to report G-codes (G8553) for 2014 eRx events. Additionally, it is important to note that electronic prescribing via certified EHR technology is still a requirement for eligible professionals in order to achieve meaningful use under the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. Visit the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program webpage for more information and to access reference materials associated with the eRx incentive payment, payment adjustment, and feedback reports.
