The American Medical Association has published guidance to help physicians avoid erroneously receiving the 1 percent reimbursement penalty under Medicare’s ePrescribing program.
Common reasons for getting penalized include reporting the wrong G-code on claims, a billing vendor or clearinghouse mistakenly removing the code from claims, having a hardship extension request denied because it included a group national provider identifier instead of an individual NPI, and filing a hardship exemption but getting no response from Medicare.
