Presented by Gregory Esper, MD, MBA, this program begins with 60 minutes of lecture followed by 30 minutes of questions and answers. Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the basics of the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Medicare Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program, and Medicare & Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs
  • Prepare their practice for upcoming dates and deadlines
  • Balance earning incentives and qualifying for multiple incentive programs
  • Discover how to successfully avoid penalties among all programs
  • Identify AAN resources to better prepare their practice

The AAN is offering free webinars to AAN members on the Medicare incentive programs and the 2013 Physician Fee Schedule (recording of January webinar now available). The cost to participate in the other 2013 webinars is $149 for the first and $50 for each additional webinar—more than 25 percent off the pricing for nonmembers. The bundling discount is applicable only when multiple webinars are purchased in the same transaction. Participants are charged per phone line, so additional staff can listen in with no extra cost. All registrants will have access to both the live and recorded options for the webinar(s) they purchase. Slides are included with all webinar purchases. Each webinar is worth 1.5 CME credits.
