Avoiding the 2014 eRx Penalty
The CMS eRx Incentive Program ended in 2013, but Electronic Prescribing continues with Meaningful Use. The 2013 6-month reporting period (January 1- June 30, 2013) was the last reporting period to avoid the 2014 eRx payment adjustment/penalty of 2% in 2014. See the CMS document, 2013 Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program: 2014 Payment Adjustment, for more detail.
