    There have been changes to the ACMPE certification eligibility criteria, plus the 2017 AMPE Exam dates have been published — with a link to the ACMPE page so that everyone can access it easily.

    Please visit our ACMPE Certification page for full details.

    We would love to see more of our Nevada Members obtain Certification and we are here to help!

    CMS formally reaffirms 2015 MU hardship exception does not nullify incentive opportunity

    In direct response to MGMA, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published a formal FAQ stating that an eligible professional (EP) may submit a hardship exception application, while still remaining eligible for an incentive payment if they successfully attest for 2015 Meaningful Use (MU). MGMA continues to encourage all EPs to take advantage of this opportunity for the 2015 reporting year and apply for the hardship exception, even if they plan to attest. This simple process will provide an extra layer of protection against potential penalties. Review MGMA's member-benefit 2015 MU hardship exception resource.

    Key dates:

    • March 11, 2016 – 2015 MU attestation deadline
    • March 15, 2016 – 2015 MU hardship exception application deadline

    This tip sheet was developed by Karen Massey (last updated on 2/9/2016) based on materials from the Nevada Office of Vital Records and is intended only as assistance. For specific rules and requirements, please contact the Nevada Office of Vital Records.

    The NV State Medical Association is working on the Death Certificate issue and has obtained some useful results such as help desk hours on the weekend. 

    Please CLICK HERE to view the Tip Sheet that I developed for our group's internal use, and I am happy to share it with my colleagues in MGMA.  There are only 4 tabs that require completion for providers, and that is not readily obvious within the system.  I hope you find it helpful and we will provide updates as we are able to make more advances on this issue.
