CMS is announcing its intent to reopen the submission period for hardship exception applications for eligible professionals and eligible hospitals to avoid the 2015 Medicare payment adjustments for not demonstrating meaningful use of Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT). The new deadline will be Nov. 30. Previously, the hardship exception application deadline was April 1 for eligible hospitals and July 1 for eligible professionals.
The Physician Value-Physician Quality Reporting System (PV-PQRS) registration system will remain open until 11:59 PM EDT Oct. 3. The PV-PQRS registration system, initially scheduled to close on Sept. 30, allows group practices to register to participate in the PQRS Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) in 2014 via Qualified PQRS Registry, EHR, or Web Interface (for groups with 25 or more eligible professionals only). The registration portal can be accessed at https://portal.cms.gov.
If you are an eligible professional for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, 2014 is the last year you can start participation in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program in order to receive incentive payments. If you choose to participate in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program for the first time in 2014, you should begin your 90-day reporting period no later than July 1 and submit attestation by Oct. 1 in order to avoid the payment adjustment in 2015.
