Medicare Meaningful Use Attestation Deadline Looms

Don't miss out on your Medicare electronic health record (EHR) incentive payment for 2014. The deadline is Feb. 28 at 10:59 pm CT to attest that you met the Medicare EHR meaningful use criteria for 2014. You also must meet this deadline to avoid the 3-percent penalty on Medicare charges in 2017.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) may have high traffic on its attestation website as Feb. 28 nears. TMA recommends not waiting to the last minute and attesting during off-peak hours to avoid delays.

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 CMS attestation website.

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