CAHs: Hardship Exception Application Deadline December 2
CMS requires that all Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) use either the 2014 or 2015 Edition Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) to meet the reporting requirements of the Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program and successfully demonstrate meaningful use.
CAHs may avoid the Medicare downward payment adjustments if they can show that meeting these requirements would result in a significant hardship. To be considered for an exception, you must complete a hardship exception application by December 2 and select the reason for the hardship.
