E-Prescribing Incentive Checks ALMOST in the Mail
October 22nd, 2010
E-prescribing incentive program are currently being processed, and should be wrapped up by the end of October. incentive payments will be paid as lump-sum to the TIN or the taxpayer ID under which the eligible professional’s claims were submitted.
It’s not too late to start participating in the e-prescribing program for 2010. You can receive an incentive payment of two percent for participating in the program. There are several FREE e-prescribing programs available online. Check our resources pages for more information.
For 2010, there is a single code to report e-prescriptions:
G8553: At least one prescription created during the encounter was generated and transmitted electronically using a qualified eRx system.
Simply append the code to your claims to report that you used a qualified system to transmit one or more prescriptions electronically during the encounter. You only need to report 25 non hospital claims for the year to qualify.
If you could use two percent more of your Medicare dollar, e-prescribing is an easy first option.
