CMS Extends Attestation Deadline for Medi-Cal EHR Incentive Program
Attestations now due May 23

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the deadline for program year 2016 attestations for the Medi-Cal Electronic Health Record Incentive Program to May 23. Because CMS’ website is non-operational as of April 28, expected to continue through May 2, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) requested an extension for all providers. According to DHCS, hundreds of providers in California have yet to attest for 2016. Providers wishing to attest for program year 2017 must wait until 2016 attestations close; 2017 attestation may not be available until May 24. Questions should be directed to or (916) 552-9181.
