Claim Your Medicare EHR Incentive Payment by March 31

Don't miss out on your Medicare electronic health record (EHR) incentive payments for 2013. March 31 is the deadline to attest that you met EHR meaningful use criteria for 2013.

TMA has developed step-by-step instructions to help guide physicians through the meaningful use process. Scroll down to Step 6 for attestation help and a link to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) attestation website.

CMS is reporting high traffic on its attestation website. TMA recommends not waiting to the last minute, and attesting during off-peak hours to avoid delays - or you may miss your opportunity to attest for 2013 and lose your incentive payment.  

If you have questions about the program, contact TMA's Health Information Technology Hotline at (800) 880-5720 or  

If you'd like on-site assistance with the EHR meaningful use program, contact one of the four Texas regional extension centers (RECs). Visit TMA's REC page for information about the RECs and the services they provide.
