The Electronic Prescribing Program, established by the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (MIPPA), provides incentive payments from 2009 through 2013 to certain Medicare providers — physicians and other health care providers, such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners — who have prescribing authority and who adopt and use systems that meet CMS's definition of a qualified electronic prescribing system. From 2012 through 2014, the program may apply a payment adjustment, or penalty, on the program's eligible providers that do not adopt and use such systems. With incentive payments scheduled to end in 2013 and penalties scheduled to end in 2014, the Electronic Prescribing Program will cease to provide positive and negative incentives to encourage eligible providers to electronically prescribe after 2014.
