CMS website offers new attestation resources

The EHR Incentive Programs attestation system opens Tuesday and will be available through Feb. 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.

Providers seeking more information can visit the CMS 2016 Program Requirements webpage on the CMS website.
