On October 7, 2014 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid reopened the Hardship exception submission period, which had previously ended on July 1, 2014 and extended it until November 30, 2014.
This extension of the submission period is meant for:
- Any EPs and EHs that have been unable to fully implement 2014 Edition CEHRT due to delays in 2014 Edition CEHRT availability, and
- First time MU participant EPs who were unable to attest by Oct. 1, 2014 using the flexibility options provided in the CMS 2014 CEHRT Flexibility Rule.
