New EHR Attestation Deadline for Eligible Professionals

CMS is extending the deadline for eligible professionals (EPs) to attest to meaningful use for the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program 2013 reporting year from 11:59 pm ET on February 28, 2014 to 11:59 pm ET March 31, 2014. In addition, CMS is offering assistance to eligible hospitals that may have experienced difficulty attesting to submit their attestation retroactively and avoid the 2015 payment adjustment.

This extension will allow more time for providers to submit their meaningful use data and receive an incentive payment for the 2013 program year, as well as avoid the 2015 payment adjustment.
