    Question eprescribe confusion

    AAPC: Back to School
    can anyone pass along eprescribe help? my physician is questioning if the 2% bonus will be calculated from all Medicare allowed charges for the reporting period, or, will the bonus result from charge encounters that had the G8553 attached to the denominators, or, will they be for all denominator charges allowed during the reporting period? ????? also, does anyone know if you have to eprescribe a specific amount to even be eligible for the bonus? I guess, basically, he wants to know if this will be worth his time and investment to report at this point. I appreciate all thoughts! thanks!
