Program Year 2015 Applications

We had over 1,700 program year 2015 applications on September 1, 2016. We review applications in the order they were submitted. Please be patient with us while we work through the program year 2015 applications. A thorough review takes some time.

If your practice has a payment being audited, we will not review your current applications until the audit is complete. The reason is if the result of the audit is a finding requiring recoupment, it may impact the current applications.

Program Year 2016 Applications

MAPIR is open for providers to attest to Adopt, Implement, Upgrade (AIU) or for their first year of attesting to Meaningful Use for the 2016 program year. CMS recently finalized a rule which will allow all providers attesting to Meaningful Use to report a 90-day period for program years 2016 and 2017. The rule is effective 1/1/2017, therefore, we are unable to allow providers reporting Meaningful Use for their second through sixth year to attest to a 90-day reporting period until 1/1/2017. For more information on this final rule please visit the CMS website.

If a provider has an active 2015 application, they will not be able to attest until the 2015 application is paid or denied. Common issues with applications are described in this Application Tip Sheet.

The deadline to submit all program year 2016 applications is March 31, 2017.
