Hardship Exemption 2017

The hardship exemption can be used by an eligible professional (EP) who qualifies for the CMS EHR Incentive program, but made the decision not to, or faced, hardships in trying to attest to the Meaningful Use measures.

Taking the exemption means the EP will avoid the penalties associated with not participating in Meaningful Use. The filing deadline is July 1, 2017.

EPs may apply for this exemption for reasons that include:

  • Insufficient Internet Connectivity
  • Extreme and/or Uncontrollable Circumstances 
  • Lack of control over the availability of Certified EHR Technology 
  • Lack of Face-to-Face Interaction
