Most versions of the Medicare fix bills we’ve seen would increase the bonus for the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) from the current 1.5 percent up to 2 percent of your allowed charges. Most of the bills also would give physicians a 2-percent bonus for using electronic prescribing. But that carrot would turn into a 1-percent penalty by 2011 for physicians who don’t e-prescribe.
