Medicare EPs Must Attest by March 31, at 11:59pm ET to Receive 2013 Incentive

Reminder: Medicare Eligible Professionals (EPs) Must Attest by March 31, 2014, at 11:59 pm ET to Receive 2013 Incentive!

From the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

Due to the large volume of providers attesting, please submit your data as soon as possible and during non-peak hours to avoid system delays. If you are an eligible professional, the last day you can register and attest to demonstrating meaningful use for the 2013 Medicare EHR Incentive Program is March 31, 2014. You must successfully attest by 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time on March 31 to receive an incentive payment for your 2013 participation. CMS extended the deadline for eligible professionals to attest to meaningful use for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program to allow more time for providers to submit their meaningful use data and receive an incentive payment for the 2013 program year.

Medicaid Eligible Professionals

Eligible professionals participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program need to refer to their state deadlines for attestation information.

Payment Adjustments

Payment adjustments for eligible professionals will be applied beginning January 1, 2015, to Medicare participants that have not successfully demonstrated meaningful use. For more information, visit the payment adjustment tipsheet for eligible professionals.

You must attest to demonstrating meaningful use every year to receive an incentive and avoid a payment adjustment.

If you are only eligible to participate in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, you are not subject to payment adjustments.
