Re:      Promoting Interoperability Program Attestation Extension
This notice informs certain providers that attestation of the Illinois Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program (formerly the Illinois Medicaid Electronic Health Record [EHR] Incentive Program) for the 2018 program year is extended to April 30, 2019.
The April 30, 2019 extension applies only to eligible professionals (EPs) who have not yet attested to the Promoting Interoperability Program for the 2018 program year.
CMS recently extended the Medicare attestation deadline two weeks, which could potentially cut into the Medicaid attestation timeframe for practices attesting to both programs. In addition, providers may have experienced delays obtaining their data due to this year’s full year CQM reporting period.  As a result of these issues, some providers may need additional time to attest. Therefore, the Department is extending the EP attestation period to April 30, 2019.
