By Friday, March 11, all eligible providers, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals must have attested to meaningful use via the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System.
Most Medicaid EHR Incentive Program participants should consult their state Medicaid offices for information regarding meaningful use attestation. Some Medicaid eligible professionals may also consult the Registration and Attestation system as an alternate attestation method in order to avoid the Medicare payment adjustment.
Per the meaningful use modifications rule published last October, eligible professionals may choose any consecutive 90-day period to attest to meaningful use. This 90-day period must have occurred between during the 2015 calendar year.
Eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals may select any consecutive 90-day period during the previous fiscal year between October 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015 for meaningful use attestation.
For those meaningful use participants attesting a hardship exception, note that CMS recently extended the deadline for these to July 1, 2016.
