Meaningful Use incentives could extend to new locations

Surgical center physicians will get Meaningful Use incentives if proposed legislation is passed.

The Electronic Health Fairness Act of 2015 could bring benefits for physicians still looking to achieve meaningful use. Tennessee Representative Diane Black introduced the legislation earlier this year, and multiple sources now report that it will extend payment incentives to ambulatory surgical physicians, though until three years after this sector is granted specific certified EHR software.

This would theoretically promote electronic health record (EHR) use as these centers await tailored solutions. There is also a corresponding Senate Resolution, S. 1347.

Among various findings, the bill noted that ambulatory surgical centers (ASC's) do not currently have access to the same kind of certified EHR technology as other facilities. While physician offices and hospitals were covered in the 2009 HITECH Act, ASC's were not.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website lists some of the important deadlines for EHR incentives. According to them, the 2016 Eligible Hospital Reconsiderations Application Submission Period ended November 30.

While physician offices and hospitals were covered in the 2009 HITECH Act, ASC's were not.

"Attestations for the 2015 program year will be accepted for all Medicare Eligible Hospitals, Eligible Professionals, and Critical Access Hospitals from January 4, 2016 through February 29, 2016," the site reads. "All Medicaid Eligible Hospitals, Eligible Professionals and Critical Access Hospitals should refer to their State Medicaid offices for information on attestation timeframes for the 2015 program year."
