    Default G8443

    AAPC: Back to School

    I code Family Medicine and the doctors liked to use the G8443 code for E-prescribe. I have since been told that the code has been deleted. I have been to the Medicare website and can find nothing on this code being deleted and if not what the new one would be! Any information would be great!

    Default G8553/ E -Rx Incentive

    Starting Jan 1 2010, it must be reported with the new e-prescribe HCPCS code of G8553. (NOT G8443.)

    According to the CMS website 2010 eRx Measure Specification, the code to report is G8553 at least one prescription created
    during the encounter was generated and transmitted electronically using a qualified eRx system.
