The MEIPASS system opened March 10th for attesting to Meaningful Use for both 2015 and 2016. This will be a hybrid attestation. First, providers will attest within MEIPASS for eligibility and clinical quality measures. Afterwards, an Excel-based MU Workbook needs to be filled out and emailed to NYS using firstname.lastname@example.org. The workbook must be sent from the provider’s email that is registered with CMS. A practice or provider can confirm which email was registered by logging into MEIPASS or by contacting Medicare directly. NYS has also requested that each provider’s workbook be sent in individual emails, not in batches. Once NYS confirms, then the Excel workbook and an Attestation Signature page will need to be physically mailed to the state with the provider’s signature. Note that if a provider wishes to attest to both 2015 and 2016, they must submit for 2015 first and receive payment before submitting another attestation for 2016.
The deadlines for attestation are as follows:
