Attestation is the process of declaring to your state Medicaid agency that you’ve met the Meaningful Use requirements to qualify for Meaningful Use incentives. After your reporting period, you’ll submit values for objectives and Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) online as part of the Meaningful Use attestation and report process.
The attestation process did not change for the 2016 reporting year. Click here for the official 2016 CMS attestation guide.
View our 2016 Attestation Preparation Checklist to help you organize your documentation and ensure you’re tracking each required reporting item. You’ll need to hold on to any relevant documentation for at least six years, including:
Printed Meaningful Use Dashboard and CQM Report
Documentation that verifies any actions completed outside of the EHR
Documentation to support any applicable exclusions

When attesting for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, you’ll prove your Medicaid patient volume each year and complete the process through your state Medicaid program.
The deadline for the Medicaid program may differ by state, so check your state’s website for the most accurate information.
