TOMORROW: Deadline to Submit Registration and Attestation Information for the Promoting Interoperability Programs

Members & Publications


March 13, 2019

Remember to submit your 2018 attestation data for the Promoting Interoperability Programs by tomorrow, March 14.

Specific submission details for each program is listed below.

  • Medicare Eligible Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) - Must attest through the QualityNet Secure Portal.
  • Medicaid Eligible Professionals (EPs) and Eligible Hospitals - Follow the requirements of your State Medicaid agencies to submit your meaningful use attestation.

Registering on Behalf of a Medicaid EP?

An EP can designate a third party to register and attest on his or her behalf. To do so, users working on behalf of an EP must have an Identity and Access Management System (I&A) web user account (User ID/Password) and be associated with the EP’s National Provider Identifier (NPI). If you are working on behalf of one or more EPs and you do not have an I&A web user account, please visit I&A Security Check to create one.

Note: States and territories will not necessarily offer the same functionality for registration and attestation in the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program. Check with your state or territory to see what functionality is offered.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
