Medicare Eligible Professionals Must Attest by March 31 to Receive 2013 Meaningful Use Incentive

The last day eligible professionals can register and attest to demonstrating meaningful use for the 2013 Medicare EHR Incentive Program is March 31, 2014. You must successfully attest by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time 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 eligible professionals will be applied beginning January 1, 2015, to Medicare participants that have not successfully demonstrated meaningful use. Importantly, eligible professionals must attest to demonstrating meaningful use every year to receive an incentive and avoid a payment adjustment.
