Show Me the Money

July 21, 2010

show_me_the_moneyIt’s still not too late to get federal incentive money for adopting e-prescribing this year!  Last month CMS released a resource sheet for the  2010 Electronic Prescribing Incentive Program which details how you could qualify to receive a full-year incentive payment. It details that eligible professionals (EPs) may begin reporting eRx at any time throughout the 2010 program year to qualify.

In order to be eligible for the payout, EPs must adopt a “qualified” eRx system which offers specific capabilities outlined by the program.  And the good news is that the eRx measure must be reported only 25 times to successfully meet reporting criteria and be considered incentive eligible!  Read the CMS document for more information and links to important resources.  With requirements this easy, you’ll be on your way to earning medicare incentive dollars in no time!
