CMS Extends Deadline for Meaningful Use Stage 2
Posted on: 12/13/2013

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced a new timeline for the implementation of meaningful use for its Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive programs.

Under the revised timeline, Stage 2 will be extended through 2016, and Stage 3 will begin in 2017 for those physicians who have completed at least two years in meaningful use Stage 2.

The one-year extension of meaningful use Stage 2 will give physicians more time to prepare for meaningful use Stage 3. (The official Jan. 1, 2014, start date for Stage 2 will remain the same.)

It is anticipated that CMS will release the proposed rulemaking for Stage 3 in the fall 2014.
