The eRx Incentive Program Ended in 2013, but Electronic Prescribing Continues with Meaningful Use
2013 was the final program year for participating and reporting in the Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program. The 6-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.
• 2013 was the last year to earn an eRx incentive payment
• 2014 is the last year to incur an eRx payment adjustment
Note: 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 EHR Incentive Program page at CMS.gov for more information.
