Upcoming Meaningful Use Deadlines for First Time Attesters

First-year meaningful use attesters (and those who did not attest in 2013) must attest by October 1, 2014 in order to avoid the 2015 penalty based on 2013 or 2014 reporting. If you are a first-year meaningful use attester that will miss the October 1, 2014 deadline, there is still time to attest for 2014 to receive incentive payments and avoid the 2016 penalty based on 2014 reporting. October 3, 2014 is the last day to begin 2014 reporting to achieve the payment incentive and avoid the 2016 penalty.
