If you are an eligible professional, make sure you are aware of the special reporting periods for submitting meaningful use measures in 2014.
Meaningful Use Reporting for Medicare and Medicaid Eligible Professionals
You only need to demonstrate meaningful use for a three-month, or 90-day, reporting period, regardless if you are demonstrating Stage 1 or Stage 2 of meaningful use.
Choose your reporting period based on your program and participation year:
- Medicare beyond first year of meaningful use: Select a three-month reporting period fixed to the quarter of the calendar year.
- Medicare in ﬁrst year of meaningful use: Select any 90-day reporting period. To avoid the 2015 payment adjustment, begin your reporting period by July 1 and attest by October 1.
- Medicaid: Select any 90-day reporting period that falls within the 2014 calendar year.
