2014 Medicare MU Attestation Deadline Extended

2014 Medicare MU Attestation Deadline Extended to March 20th 2015

If you are an Eligible Professional participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, now you have until 11:59 p.m. ET on March 20, 2015 to attest to demonstrate Meaningful Use of the data collected during your 2014 EHR reporting period. This new deadline is an extension from the previous deadline of February 28th, so attest soon!

We urge providers to complete attestation for 2014 as soon as possible.

This extension also enables eligible professionals who have not already used their one “switch” to switch programs (from Medicare to Medicaid, or vice versa) for the 2014 payment year until 11:59 pm ET on March 20, 2015. After that time, eligible professionals will no longer be able to switch programs.

If you are participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, please refer to refer to your state’s deadlines for attestation information.

Note: The Medicare extension does not affect deadlines for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
