DON’T LOSE 1.5% TO 2% OF YOUR MEDICARE DOLLARS
We have been talking with QNet Support, the organization that is helping CMS to determine if eRx requirements have been met and to answer all question based on the PQRS for eRx. We have found that many doctors made a huge tactical mistake in 2011. Instead of submitting the G8553 HCPCs code with the qualifying CPT E&M code (office visit) on the same claim, they sent in all their qualifying G8553 codes separately from the E&M. This cost them 1% of their Medicare reimbursements in 2012.
Please, AVOID this problem by making sure you have submitted the E&M code and the G8553 at the same time for at least for 10 billable services provided from 1/1/12 through 6/30/12 for traditional Medicare patients. This will help to ensure you are not charged 1.5% of your Medicare reimbursement in 2013. We also suggest that you do it at least 30 times to help to ensure that in 2014 you won’t lose 2% of your Medicare reimbursement. We actually suggest that you just go ahead and e-prescribe for all of your patients. The benefits far outweigh the nuisance factor.
June 30th is creeping up on us and we want you to be sure you don’t lose money.
