CMS is pleased to announce that the 2013 Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program incentive payments are now available for eligible professionals and group practices who submitted data for Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Part B services provided January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013.

As required by law, President Obama issued a sequestration order on March 1, 2013. Under these mandatory reductions, 2013 eRx Incentive Program incentive payments made to eligible professionals and group practices have been reduced by 2%. This 2% reduction affected eRx Incentive Program incentive payments for reporting periods that ended on or after April 1, 2013. All 2013 incentive payments are subject to sequestration.

For more information on interpreting the data in the report, check out the 2013 eRx Incentive Program Feedback Report User Guide. For more information on the eRx Incentive Program incentive payments, please review the Analysis and Payment webpage of the eRx Incentive Program website.

If needed, please contact the QualityNet Help Desk for assistance. They can be reached at 1-866-288-8912 (TTY 1-877-715-6222) or via qnetsupport@hcqis.org from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
