G8553 is no longer accepted

Thomas Posted Thu 23rd of January, 2014 13:29:21 PM

"G8553" is no longer valid, what code do i substitute for it?

There will be no replacement, as the sole purpose of the code was for tracking the eRx incentive/penalty program. Since that is now set based on whether a provider got their required number of codes in during the reporting period or not, there really isn't a need for the code.
