CMS Reopens 2013 eRx Hardship Exemption Request Period

If you are a provider who needs to file for hardship exemption for the 2013 Electronic Prescribing (eRx) payment adjustment, your opportunity to do so has been extended. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has reopened the Quality Reporting Communication Support Page until Saturday, June 30, 2012.

Guidance on requesting a hardship exemption is available at the Quality Support Page User Manual.

The NCMS Health Information Technology (HIT) Resource Center may also be helpful. Questions can be directed to Terri Gonzalez, NCMS Foundation Practice Technical Assistance Coordinator, at 919-833-3836 or [email protected].
