Bill Would Grant Meaningful Use Exemptions for 2015
Sometimes the bureaucrats at CMS really outdo themselves. Like when they finally passed a new rule for the meaningful use program too late for physicians to have 90 days left in the year to comply with the rule. TMA is backing HR 3940 by U.S. Rep. Tom Price, MD (R-Ga.), which authorizes a meaningful use significant hardship exception for the 2015 reporting period due to the delay publishing the rule. “Physician practices and the health care industry cannot be expected to turn on a dime, especially when regulatory changes are rolled out during a required reporting period,” Dr. Garcia wrote in a letter to Congressman Price and the Texas delegation in Congress.
