CMS offers guidelines to appeal denied EHR incentive payments

As announced in October last year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has begun allowing hospitals and practices denied EHR incentive payments to appeal the decision. Guidance for organizations that wish to appeal is now available. 

The appeal process is available for practices and hospitals that have been deemed ineligible for the incentive programs or failed to meet meaningful use requirements. Organizations that received incentives may also appeal the amount of the payment.

Hospitals or practices that wish to file an appeal should download the guidelines from CMS’s website. Information includes requirements for filing appeals, deadlines for each type of appeal and how to contact the agency with questions.
