The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has placed on its Web site a number of guidance documents about the Medicare electronic prescribing incentive program for 2010.
Providers that successfully document their use of electronic prescribing can receive a 2% bonus on all Medicare-covered Part B charges and not just charges for specific services where they reported a quality data code indicating use of electronic prescribing. The bonus will be awarded in a lump sum payment during 2011.
The guidance documents provide information on: measure specifications for claims or registry-based reporting, changes from the 2009 incentive program including new group practice reporting options, and principals for reporting the e-prescribing measure on claims, among other information.
Details are available at cms.hhs.gov/ERxIncentive.
