Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program
The Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program, which began January 1, 2009, and is authorized under section 1848(m) of the Social Security Act (the Act), provides incentives for eligible professionals who are successful electronic prescribers. As stated in the Act, for years 2012 through 2014, eligible professionals who are not successful electronic prescribers will receive a Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) payment adjustment applied at an increasing rate through 2014.
