Oct 3 - E-Prescribing Attestation Deadline for Medicare EHR Incentative Program

Oct 03, 2012


October 3rd will be the last day for eligible professionals to begin their 90-day reporting period for calendar year (CY) 2012 in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. For EPs, this means that they must begin their consecutive 90-day reporting period by October 3rd in order to attest to meeting meaningful use and be eligible to receive an incentive payment for CY 2012. CMS continues to encourage EPs not to miss the opportunity to participate in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program this year. Begin your reporting period by October 3rd to get on the path to payment for CY 2012. This becomes even more important now that stage 2 rules have been released and the 2015 payment adjustment details have been disclosed. You must be on the path of meaningfully using certified technology in order to avoid Medicare payment adjustments in 2015. MORE
