On December 2, CMS issued a notice: Provider Enrollment Application Fee Amount for Calendar Year 2015 CMS-6056-N, effective January 1, 2015. This notice announces a $553.00 CY 2015 application fee for institutional providers that are initially enrolling in the Medicare or Medicaid program or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP); revalidating their Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP enrollment; or adding a new Medicare practice location. This fee is required with any enrollment application submitted on or after January 1, 2015 and on or before December 31, 2015.
CMS extended the deadline to attest to meaningful use for the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program 2014
Early last week CMS extended the deadline for eligible hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) to attest to meaningful use for the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program 2014 reporting year from 11:59 pm EST on November 30, 2014 to 11:59 pm EST on December 31, 2014. This extension will allow more time for hospitals to submit their meaningful use data and receive an incentive payment for the 2014 program year, as well as avoid the 2016 Medicare payment adjustment.
