This service addressees stage 1 of the meaningful use menu requirements for providing patient-specific education resources when appropriate.
In November 2010, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced that beginning in 2012, eligible professionals who are not successful electronic prescribers may be subject to a payment adjustment. Section 132 of the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (MIPPA) authorizes CMS to apply this payment adjustment whether or not the eligible professional is planning to participate in the eRx Incentive Program.
The payment adjustment in 2012, with regard to all of the eligible professionals' Part B- covered professional services, will result in the eligible professional or group practice receiving 99% of the Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) amount that would otherwise apply to such services. In 2013, the eligible professional will receive only 98.5% of their covered Part B-eligible charges if they are not a successful electronic prescriber. In 2014, the penalty for not being a successful electronic prescriber is 2% resulting in eligible professionals receiving 98% of their covered Part B charges.
