G8447 is used to report patient encounters documented using an EHR system that is certified by an authorized testing and certification body and G8553 is to report that at least one prescription created during the encounter was generated and transmitted electronically using a qualified eRx system. Unfortunately, I don't know if the two can be used on the same claim.

Can you tell me..with your EMR's do you have to manually add these codes or is it going to be an automated function when the physician eRx that the charge will fall?
