Ignoring This Deadline Could Prove Costly
Healthcare professionals who are eligible to participate in the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program this year must instead report under the Merit-based Incentive Program (MIPS) to avoid a negative payment adjustment in 2018. Not EHR-ready? You may qualify for an exemption.
Time Is of the Essence
To avoid the 2018 pay cut, eligible professionals (EPs) who have never successfully attested to meaningful use under the EHR Incentive Program, and who are transitioning to MIPS in 2017, must take one of the following actions by Oct. 1, 2017:
- Attest to the 2017 EHR Incentive Program (modified stage 2) requirements; or
- Submit a one-time Hardship Exception Application.
