Attestation Worksheets Now Available for 2016 Medicare EHR Incentive Program

Dec 27, 2016

The EHR Incentive Programs attestation system will be open from January 3 - February 28, 2017. Providers must attest by the attestation deadline to avoid a 2018 payment adjustment.

To help providers prepare for the 2016 EHR Incentive Programs attestation period, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released two attestation worksheets for eligible professionals and eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals.

Providers can log their meaningful use measures for each objective in the worksheet and use it as a reference when attesting for the 2016 Medicare EHR Incentive Program in CMS’ Registration and Attestation System.

AAPM&R’s registry will have the ability to attest the EHR requirements for the 2017 MIPS portion of the Quality Reporting Program. Email spineregistry@aapmr.org to learn more.
