October 3 is Last Day for Eligible Professionals to Begin Medicare EHR Incentive Program Reporting Period

Oct. 3 is the last day for eligible professionals to begin their 90-day reporting period for the Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program in calendar year 2012.

EPs need to begin the reporting period by Oct. 3 in order to attest to meeting meaningful use and be eligible to receive an incentive payment.

For EPs who have already completed their reporting period, CMS has a number of tools to help prepare for attestation:

• EPs can use the CMS Eligible Professional Attestation Worksheet to record their meaningful use measures to have as a reference when attesting.
• The Meaningful Use Attestation Calculator and Attestation User Guide for Eligible Professionals can also help EPs attest.
