On 10/16/2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a final rule Stage 3 and Modifications to Meaningful Use in 2015 Through 2017. You can see the rule by using this link: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2015-10-16/pdf/2015-25595.pdf. This rule sets new criteria for eligible professionals and eligible hospitals participating in the EHR Incentive Programs.
Please note that the TennCare EHR Provider Incentive Payment Program web site nor the PIPP portal currently reflect these policy changes. Forthcoming announcements will be made via the ListServ and the TennCare EHR Newsletter. We will also notify you when we are ready to accept 2015 MU attestations according to the modified requirements.
