Notice from CMS: Attest to 2016 Program Requirements by February 28

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Registration and Attestation System is now open.

Providers participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program must attest to the 2016 program requirements by February 28, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. ET in order to avoid a 2018 payment adjustment. The EHR reporting period was any continuous 90 days between January 1 and December 31, 2016.

If you are participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, please refer to your state’s deadlines for attestation information.

If you are eligible to participate in both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, you MUST demonstrate meaningful use to avoid the Medicare payment adjustment. You may demonstrate meaningful use under either Medicare or Medicaid.

Reminder: Remember to visit the registration tab in the Registration and Attestation system to ensure your personal information is accurate. For more information on registration, visit the Registration & Attestation page of the EHR Incentive Programs website.

Payment adjustments and hardship exceptions

In January 2018, CMS will begin to apply payment adjustments for providers that did not successfully demonstrate meaningful use of EHR technology or apply for and receive a hardship exception for the 2016 program year. CMS will send a separate announcement with more information on the hardship exception application process, once available.
