To Our Valued Clients and Their Staffs:
Deadline for e-Prescribing
In order to avoid a reduction in your 2012 Medicare reimbursements, you must submit at least 10 electronic prescriptions by June 30, 2011.
There are multiple resources available including the MGMA, AMA, AAFT as well as MPR,LLC. to assist you with the basics on e-prescribing and how to successfully implement it.

Outpatient Cardiology Diagnostic Services Update
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield are changing a previously voluntary precertification option to a requirement effective November 1, 2010 for some of the tests that you perform. This includes Stress Echocardiogram (SE), Resting Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE), Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE).
You should have received information from Anthem sent directly to your office already. This information is important to you because this will change your reimbursement if processes are not created prior to the care being rendered to obtain precertification.
For additional information regarding how this change will impact your practice, feel free to contact Colleen M. Walters, Chief Operating Officer at cellular (937) 207-8846 or email email@example.com.
