We have several resources to help you with attestation. Our Attestation Preparation Checklist will help you organize your documentation and ensure you are 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
You can also use the following resources from CMS:
Medicare attestation is completed through the CMS Registration and Attestation system.
The deadline to register and attest for any reporting year is the end of February of the following year. First year Medicare providers must attest by October 1, 2014 to avoid 2015 penalties.
You’ll need the following to complete your attestation with CMS:
Your reporting period start and end date
Practice Fusion’s 2014 Edition CMS EHR Certification ID. Refer to the table below for the certification ID that applies to you.
Your National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) user ID and password (the same information that’s used to log in to PECOS)
Your Billing Tax Identification Number (TIN)
Note: If you have any technical questions during the attestation process, contact CMS’ EHR Incentive Program Hotline at 1-888-734-6433.
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.
