If you are trying to determine if you would meet the criteria needed for attestation, CMS has added a handy calculator to their site:
Save the calculations and guessing, with AttestEasyTM DrFirst attestation experts monitor your practice's progress during the 90 day attestation period, alerting you if your numbers start to go of course. When your 90 day period is complete, our attestation experts guide you through the attestation process ensuring you successfully attest the first time and receive your incentive check as quickly as possible.
Remember that to get paid for Medicaid for the first year, you do not need to achieve Meaningful Use, only purchase or upgrade to an ONC-ATCB Certified system like Rcopia-MU.
