Attestation Deadline Extended for MU Participants

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the deadline for Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program attestations to March 13 for reporting periods that occurred in 2016. All physicians who participated in the final year of the Medicare/ Eligible Professional version of the EHR Incentive Program will have an extra two weeks to report compliance to CMS.

Physicians who participated in the Medicaid-specific variation of the EHR Incentive Program should contact their state programs to address questions about attestation.

Please visit the CMS EHR Incentive Program website for additional information.
