Thanks to the Advocacy Committee for compiling a list of deadlines that may be of interest to you. 


June 30: 2016 PQRS GPRO registration deadline


July 1 – Hardship exception applications for providers unable to attest to meaningful use in 2015 are due. This includes applications under the new, streamlined process. Note that CMS has reversed itself and moved this deadline to July 1. It was originally set for March 15. 

September 30 – The CMS grace period ends. For professional services provided on and after this date, Medicare claims must include the most specific ICD-10 codes in order to ensure payment.


October 1 - All payers, including private payers that have said they will follow CMS in offering a grace period, will now be free to implement stricter edits for ICD-10 code.
