DOs who participate in Medicare and plan to apply for an Electronic Health Record (EHR) Meaningful Use hardship exception can find help navigating the application process with the AOA’s step-by-step application guide.
In late 2015, President Barack Obama signed legislation authorizing the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to provide a blanket exemption to all physicians who apply for hardship exemptions from Stage 2 EHR meaningful use penalties for the 2015 performance period, so few physicians are expected to receive penalties in 2017.
The AOA’s EHR Meaningful Use hardship exception guide includes a link to the application and detailed instructions for completing and submitting the form. The deadline to apply for a hardship exception is July 1, 2016 (extended from the original deadline of March 15, 2016).
