CMS Announces Intent to Engage in Rulemaking for EHR Incentive Program Changes for 2015

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) intends to engage in rulemaking this spring to help ensure providers continue to meet meaningful use requirements.

In response to input from health care providers and other stakeholders, CMS is considering the following changes to the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs:

  1. Shortening the 2015 reporting period to 90 days to address provider concerns about their ability to fully deploy 2014 Edition software
  2. Realigning hospital reporting periods to the calendar year to allow eligible hospitals more time to incorporate 2014 Edition software into their workflows and to better align with other quality programs
  3. Modifying other aspects of the programs to match long-term goals, reduce complexity, and lessen providers’ reporting burden

CMS News: 2014 Meaningful Use Reporting Period for Eligible Professionals Ends Today, December 31, 2014

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

CMS reminds eligible professionals participating in the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs that December 31, 2014 marks the end of the 2014 calendar year (CY) and the end of the last 2014 EHR reporting period.  Attestation for 2014 must be completed on or before February 28, 2015.

Eligible Hospitals Must Attest By December 31 to Receive 2014 Incentive

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAH) must successfully attest for the 2014 Medicare EHR Incentive Program by 11:59 pm Eastern Time on December 31, 2014 in order to receive an incentive payment for 2014 participation. 

This extended deadline does not impact the deadlines for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
