Medicare provider: avoid CMS penalty by e-prescribing now
If you are a Medicare provider, you must be e-prescribing by June 30, 2012 and have completed all the paperwork required prior to this date.
If you have a system for prescribing, be sure you are fullfilling all the requirements.
The penalty is great if you are seeing a lot of this population and it will take you off course for the balance of EMR incentives.
Be sure what your staff is doing, ask and double check with them to be sure everything is completed. Leaving this to the staff is not an excuse to miss a deadline. It is the practice money, not the staffs. Be sure you are responsible for your practice. Check today.
