The deadline to submit 2018 attestation data for the Promoting Interoperability Programs is February 28, 2019.
Last year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) (@CMSGov) transitioned to the QualityNet System for hospitals that attest to CMS for the Promoting Interoperability Programs. By transitioning to one system, CMS continues the effort to streamline data submission methods and reduce burden.
Specific submission details for each program is listed below.
- Medicare Eligible Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) – Must attest through the QualityNet Secure Portal.
- Medicaid Eligible Professionals (EPs) and Eligible Hospitals – Follow the requirements of your State Medicaid agencies to submit your meaningful use attestation.
Registering on Behalf of a Medicaid EP?
An EP can designate a third party to register and attest on his or her behalf. To do so, users working on behalf of an EP must have an Identity and Access Management System (I&A) web user account (User ID/Password) and be associated with the EP’s National Provider Identifier (NPI). If you are working on behalf of one or more EPs and you do not have an I&A web user account, please visit I&A Security Check to create one.
Note: States and territories will not necessarily offer the same functionality for registration and attestation in the Promoting Interoperability Program. Check with your state or territory to see what functionality is offered.
