EHR Mandate Deadline

EHR Mandate Deadline

When is EHR mandated?

There are incentive payments from the Federal government for using certified EHR in a meaningful way in your office. However, providers who are not utilizing certified EHR in a meaningful way by 2015 will begin to have a reduction in their payments from Medicare.

 In fact, if physicians do NOT adopt EHR by:

  • 2015 – reimbursements will be reduced by 1%
  • 2016 – reimbursements will be reduced by 2%
  • 2017 – reimbursements will be reduced by 3%
  • 2018 – reimbursements will be reduced by 4% (less than75% compliance)
  • 2019+ – reimbursements will be reduced by 5% (less than75% compliance)

Thus, the mandate is directly associated with your Medicare reimbursements.
