CMS offers guidance on EHR incentive appeals
Modern Healthcare

Hospitals and clinicians that have failed to obtain payments through the government’s Medicare electronic health-record system incentive program and those seeking to challenge a payment amount now can look to the CMS for guidance on the appeals process.

Administrative-appeals information is available for download from the CMS’ website for hospitals and healthcare professionals that have been deemed ineligible to participate in the program or denied meaningful-user status. Information also is available about payment calculation appeals.
