ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Centers for Medicaid & Medical Services (CMS) has finalized ways to avoid electronic prescribing payment penalty by offering exemptions that will kick in 2012 in the U.S. Eligible professionals (EPs) can avoid the adjustment if they meet the criteria which include prescribing medications that cannot be transmitted electronically and limited prescribing activity. However, CMS determines the exemptions on a case-to-case basis.
