Medicare Requirements for E Prescribing: File for Exemption by November 1, 2011

All Eligible Providers who need to file exemption to avoid the 1% reduction penalty for 2012 Medicare payments, must do so by NOV 1, 2011.

All EPs who will be participating in Meaningful use initiative and will not be considered for eRx initiative, need to submit an Exemption request by November 1, 2011. Their exclusion from the eRx initiative does not automatically protect them from the 1% reduction penalty.

It has to be done by the EPs personally as it will include information that they are not supposed to give anyone else.

Unless the Exemption is requested, the 1% penalty for 2012 will go into effect.
