Attestation deadline approaches on Feb. 28

If you participated in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program during 2012, you must complete the attestation process for the 2012 program year by Feb. 28, 2013, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

In order to be eligible to attest, CMS noted, you must have completed your 2012 reporting period by Dec. 31, 2012,

The agency encouraged eligible providers (EPs) to attest as soon as possible to resolve any issues that could delay payment.

CMS said Medicaid EPs should check with their state for their attestation deadline.
