Oct. 18—Eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals have until Nov. 30 to register and submit meaningful use attestation for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program to receive a 2013 incentive payment.

These hospitals must attest to demonstrating meaningful use every year to receive an incentive and avoid a payment adjustment. Hospitals participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program should refer to state deadlines for attestation.

Payment adjustments for Medicare-eligible hospitals that have not successfully demonstrated meaningful use will be applied beginning in FY15 (starting Oct. 1, 2014). The adjustment is determined by the hospital’s reporting period in a prior year. Learn more.
