The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has informed eligible professionals (EPs) who are first-time participants in the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program in 2017 are eligible to apply for a one-time hardship exception by October 1, 2017. A first-time EP may apply for this one-time significant hardship to avoid a 2018 payment adjustment if:

  • The EP is a first-time participant in the EHR Incentive Program in CY 2017 and intends to participate in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program in CY 2017
  • The EP is transitioning to Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2017 performance period
  • The EP intends to report on measures specified for the Advancing Care Information performance category under the MIPS in 2017
