Penalized for Not E-Prescribing in 2011?

To prevent a 2012 penalty, physicians should have successfully e-prescribed 10 times and reported G8553 on the claim form before June 30, 2011. Physicians also could have filed for an exemption with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) before Nov. 7, 2011.

Some physicians did take the required action but CMS penalized them anyway. If you are one of them, here are two possible reasons.
