CMS Extends EHR Incentive Program Attestation Deadline for 2016 Participation to March 13, 2017

 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that providers will have two additional weeks to register and attest to meaningful use for 2016 and avoid the 2018 penalty. Doctors now have until Monday, March 13, to attest for the 2016 reporting year.

Doctors should note that CMS is only extending the attestation period, not the reporting period, so doctors must have concluded their reporting by December 31, 2016.
