System Changes in Place for Providers Attesting Under Certification Flexibility Options

Providers can now attest for Program Year 2014 utilizing one of the options afforded through the Certification Flexibility Rule. System changes were implemented March 21st allowing providers to attest using an earlier version of their system and meet an earlier version of meaningful use measures. It is critical that providers enter the certification number that reflects the system version used during the meaningful use reporting period. This may not be the system version currently in use.

Program Year 2014 Grace Period

The grace period for Program Year 2014 will run January 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015. Providers are encouraged to submit their attestation as soon as possible and not wait until the end of the grace period.

Questions about program requirements or the application process can be directed to or to the EHR Call Center at 1-855-231-5472.
