Meaningful UseThe Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is reminding eligible providers (EPs) that the reporting year for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs for 2012 will end on Monday, December 31.

CMS says that means “(EPs) must have completed their 90 or 365-day reporting period (within the calendar year) by the end of 2012 in order to receive an incentive payment.” And CMS is stressing that “Medicare EPs must complete attestation for the 2012 program year by February 28, 2013, but can attest as soon as their reporting period is complete.”

The attestation deadline for the Medicaid EHR incentives program in Georgia is March 1, 2013.
