Wednesday, October 3, 2012, is the last day for eligible professionals (EPs) to begin 90-day reporting period for this program, for calendar year 2012. EPs begin their consecutive 90-day reporting period by October 3rd in order to attest to meeting meaningful use and be eligible to receive an incentive payment for CY 2012. 

It's also the last day they can start participating and receive their maximum possible Medicare incentive payment: This is the last year that EPs can begin participation in the EHR Incentive Program and get the full Medicare incentives of $44,000 per EP. If first-year Medicare EPs have not started their 90-day reporting period by October 3, 2012, they will not be eligible for a calendar year 2012 payment; they can only receive $39,000 in Medicare incentives if they successfully participate in 2013.
