Medicare’s MU Program

Physicians who are eligible to participate in the Medicare’s Meaningful Use (MU) program in 2017, but have never attested before are to receive a negative payment adjustment in 2018.

To ease the burden on physicians and avoid a financial penalty, the Centers for Medicaid Services (CMS) has developed a one-time hardship exception for 2017 first-time reporters who plan to participate in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS program).

For more information, visit CMS’s web page, Payment Adjustments & Hardship Information. You will be able to download the application for hardship along with instructions.
