CMS Announces Four Additional Hardship Exemptions from the 2012 Medicare Payment Reduction and Extends the Exemption Deadline


CMS announced today that four additional significant hardship exemptions will allow physicians to be exempt from the 2012 Medicare payment reduction of 1%.

Exemptions will be granted to:

  1. Eligible professionals who register to participate in the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Program and adopt certified EHR technology.
  2. Eligible professionals who are unable to electronically prescribe due to local, state, or federal law or regulation.
  3. Eligible professionals who have limited prescribing activity.
  4. Eligible professionals who have insufficient opportunities to report the e-prescribing measure due to limitations of the measure’s denominator.
