Time is running out to take full advantage of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. Providers must begin Meaningful Use of Certified Technology by October 1, 2014 to receive maximum incentives (up to $24,000) from the Medicare Program. 2014 is the last year that eligible professionals (EPs) can register to participate and begin demonstrating meaningful use (MU) to earn an incentive. Providers who fail to demonstrate Meaningful Use in 2014 will be penalized with reduced Medicare reimbursements in 2015.
