The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is reminding eligible professionals and group practices that the deadline to request a hardship exemption for the 2012 Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program adjustment is November 1, 2011. Providers should determine if they are subject to the 2012 eRx payment adjustment by reviewing the MLN Article SE1107. If you believe that you may be subject to the 2012 eRx payment adjustment, you should determine if you meet any of the hardship exemption categories specified by CMS in the 2011 Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program Final Rule. For additional information, contact Jim Boehm at Harmony Healthcare IT. Or, visit the eRx page on the CMS website, and see the new FAQ. You can also make sure to visit the EHR Incentive Programs website for the latest news and updates.
