E-Prescribing 2013 Hardship Exemption Submission Period Extends from March 1 to June 30, 2012
On Thu Mar 1, CMS re-opened the Quality Reporting Communication Support Page to allow individual eligible professionals and CMS-selected group practices the opportunity to request a significant hardship exemption for the 2013 Electronic Prescribing (eRx) payment adjustment. The Communication Support Page will accept hardship exemption requests now through Sat June 30. A user manual is available to assist individual eligible professionals and CMS-selected group practices in submitting their request for a hardship exemption.
