Program Year 2014 Grace Period

The grace period for Program Year 2014 will run January 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015.  The purpose of the extended grace period is to allow providers that may be attesting under one of the options in the 2014 Certification Flexibility Rule adequate time to complete their application once the system changes are in place.  Providers not attesting using an option under the Certification Flexibility Rule are encouraged to submit their attestation now and not wait until the end of the grace period.  It is anticipated that there will be an influx of applications using a flexibility option therefore causing delays in processing and payment.  Applications being submitted now are being reviewed within 30-days.  A 30-day review period will not be possible with the number of applications we anticipate being submitted in June 2015.

If you have questions regarding flexibility options, please visit the Certification Flexibility Rule section.

Questions about program requirements or the application process can be directed to or to the EHR Call Center at 1-855-231-5472.
