I've had to research this for my surgeons. What may work in your favor are two of the exceptions for reporting listed below. The denominator codes do not include inpatient E&M codes or the global E&M code qualifying the surgeon for #1, and the numbers may crunch to exempt them because of the high allowance for surgery compared to the E&M charge allowance for services in the denominator codes for #2.
1. Does not have at least 100 cases during the January-June 2011 period containing an encounter code in the measure denominator;
2. Has less than 10% of their total allowed Part B FFS charges comprised of charges from the eRx measure denominator during the January-June 2011period.
I also discovered that the surgeons' use of a hospital's qualified EHR system does not "count" for the reporting for payment adjustment.
