What goals can be achieved with e prescribing?
The final eRx payment adjustment will be applied during the 2014 calendar year and is a 2.0% adjustment
(eligible professional will receive 98% of his/her Medicare Part B PFS amount for covered professional services).
The 2013 eRx Incentive Program 6-month reporting period (1/1/13-6/30/13) is the final reporting period to avoid the 2014 eRx payment adjustment.
eRX – 2014 – 2% Adjustment

PQRS – 2015 – 1.5% Adjustment
EHR - 2015 - 1% Adjustment
