Easy-to-Implement, no-risk solution provides compliance in one business day

e Interactive Universe, LLC (eIU), a complete e-Prescribing solutions provider, is offering a no-risk solution created from its Web-based, standalone, full service e InteractiveRx™ application that will allow physicians to comply with the June 30 deadline that requires them to send at least 10 prescriptions electronically or be subject to a one percent negative payment adjustment to their 2012 Medicare Part B Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) reimbursements. In the highly unlikely event that the solution fails to help a physician’s practice meet the deadline, their service fee paid to e Interactive Universe will be completely refunded.

This solution is MIPPA compliant and can be implemented in a matter of hours via an online, one-on-one training session where a company trainer guides a member of a physician’s office staff through the simple steps necessary to achieve the required number of electronically submitted prescriptions. After training is completed, deadline compliance can be achieved in less than one business day, depending on Medicare patient volume – guaranteed by the company.

A single, successful e-prescription reporting event consists of submitting the G-code (G8553) when performing one of the service codes defined below during a patient visit in which at least one prescription -- a new script, renewal or refill --was generated during the patient encounter –- and transmitted using a qualified e-Prescription system. Physicians need to do this with only ten patients to meet the compliance requirements. It’s that simple.

The applicable service codes for the electronic prescribing measure are: 90801, 90802,90804, 90805, 90806, 90807, 90808, 90809, 90862, 92002, 92004, 92012, 92014, 96150, 96151, 96152, 99201, 99202, 99203, 99204, 99205, 99211, 99212, 99213, 99214, 99215, 99304, 99305, 99306, 99307, 99308, 99309, 99310, 99315, 99316, 99324, 99325, 99326, 99327, 99341, 99342, 99343, 99344, 99345, 99347, 99348, 99349, 99350. The applicable G codes are: G0101, G0108, G0109. The measure has no diagnosis codes or age/gender requirements in order to be included in the denominator.

If physicians choose, they can continue to send 15 additional scripts electronically and comply with the Medicare 12/31/2011 deadline and achieve a one percent bonus on their 2011 Medicare Part B reimbursements. The e Interactive Universe standalone solution provides both a quick and easy solution to the Medicare deadlines but also provides all the long-term benefits of a complete e-Prescribing system. In addition, if the physician is in the process or is considering converting to an Electronic Health Records System (EHR), eIU will assist the practice to easily migrate all the data and capability to their new EHR whenever they are ready.
