Critical access hospitals that did not achieve meaningful use in the Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program for the 2016 reporting period or receive a hardship exception will see their Medicare payments reduced to 100% of their reasonable costs in fiscal year 2018, according to a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services fact sheet reviewing the program’s annual payment adjustment amounts for CAHs. CMS has extended the deadline for CAHs that received a payment adjustment to apply for reconsideration. The new deadline is Feb. 19. For more information, visit cms.gov.
