Tomorrow is the Last Day Eligible Professionals can Attest for the EHR Incentive

February 28, 2013 is the last day for Medicare eligible professionals  to register and attest to receive an incentive payment for 2012. $10.7 billion in meaningful use incentive payments have been paid out to eligible professionals. Eligible professionals can receive up to $44,000 through the Medicare EHR Incentive Program (over 5 years).

The EHR Information Center has extended their hours and can assist  providers with questions in regards to attestation for 2012. For assistance, dial 1-888-734-6433 (primary number) or 888-734-6563 (TTY number).

Tomorrow’s deadline is important, because if you, or any of the providers you work with, began using certified EHR Technology in 2012, and met the published meaningful use guidelines, you can begin the path towards receiving payments guaranteed to you under the law. If you have not begun this transition, now is the time to consider it. Visit the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website to learn more about what is required of you, and consider contacting EHR Evolution for more information.
