Modern Healthcare announced 2/26/16 that CMS has extended the deadline for hospitals, critical access hospitals, physicians and other eligible professionals to file applications for so-called "hardship" exemptions from the Meaningful Use requirements of the EHR incentive payment program to July 1, 2016. The previous deadlines were March 15, 2016, for physicians and other EPs and April 1, 2016, for hospitals and CAHs. The extension is being granted “so providers have sufficient time to submit their applications to avoid adjustments to their Medicare payments in 2017." Access the new application forms and instructions on filing a hardship exemption on the CMS website.
