CMS proposes 90-Day Meaningful Use reporting period in 2016

July 8, 2016

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed shortening the Meaningful Use reporting period for all eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and Critical Access Hospitals to any continuous 90-day period between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2016. CMS included this provision in the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Payment System proposed rule. Currently, providers are required to report Meaningful Use measures for the full calendar year for returning participants. This proposed change will increase reporting flexibility and lower the reporting burden for all providers. The OPPS final rule is expected later this fall.
