Medicare Electronic Prescribing Program Exemptions:
CMS Policy Is Clear

The Chiro.Org Blog


A recent misrepresentation of Federal policy related to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Electronic Prescribing Program has recently circulated through the chiropractic profession.

To clarify any confusion this may have caused, ACA would like to direct DCs to this issue of MLN Matters, which provides information directly from CMS (Medicare) regarding the electronic prescribing program exemptions.

In short:   providers who are NOT:   MDs, DOs, podiatrists, nurse practitioners or physician assistants
are exempt from the e-Rx payment adjustment.

If you have any additional questions that are not answered on the CMS site, please contact: GR@acatoday.org

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.
