The deadline for Medicare providers to complete attestation with CMS for 2014 incentives is February 28, 2015. If you are a Medicaid provider, we advise contacting your state Medicaid agency for attestation deadline information.
*Please Note: It is the responsibility of each provider to maintain supporting paper or electronic documentation to fully support the data that is submitted during attestation. It is recommended to retain this documentation for at least six (6) years in case of an audit. For more information on keeping supporting documentation, please see the following CMS resource: EHR Incentive Programs Support Documentation for Audits.
The table above represents the total number of objectives that you must report on, based upon the Meaningful Use Stage that you are participating in.
Medicare providers should attest by visiting the Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System. Medicaid providers should contact their state Medicaid program for attestation instructions.
