If you had been hoping to avoid a 1.5 percent hit to your Part B pay next year, you might be in luck. You can request hardship exemptions from CMS if you think your practice meets any of the four eligibility criteria.
As you would probably know, if you didn’t successfully participate in e-prescribing in 2011, you’ll undergo one percent payment adjustment on your Part B pay this year. However, just before the start of 2012, CMS began to accept hardship exemptions for the 2012 adjustment. But since the timeline was so tight and the rules were new that many practices didn’t know what to do and missed the application deadline.
