New March 31 Medicare EHR attestation deadline

14 February 2014

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) extended the Medicare electronic health record (EHR) incentive program deadline for eligible professionals to attest to meaningful use for the 2013 reporting year to March 31. CMS is also offering assistance to eligible hospitals that may have experienced difficulty submitting their attestation retroactively to avoid the 2015 payment adjustment.
