EHR Incentive Program: Medicare EPs Must Attest by March 31 to Receive 2013 Incentive

If you are an eligible professional (EP), the last day you can register and attest to demonstrating meaningful use for the 2013 Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program is March 31, 2014. You must successfully attest by 11:59pm ET 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.

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