By participating in the incentive program, am I guaranteed to receive the full $44,000 reimbursement?

$44,000 is the maximum incentive payout over 5 years if your first qualifying year is 2011 or 2012. BUT…your actual payment amount is based on 75% of your Medicare reimbursements for each payment year, up to the allowed amount for each year. The allowed maximum yearly reimbursement schedule is as follows:

  1. Year 1: up to $18,000
  2. Year 2: up to $12,000
  3. Year 3: up to $8,000
  4. Year 4: up to $4,000
  5. Year 5: up to $2,000
