The 2015 Medicare EHR Incentive Program Hardship Exception Application deadline is July 1, 2016. This is the last day that eligible professionals (EPs) can submit a 2015 Meaningful Use hardship exception application. This deadline was extended by CMS earlier this year to allow more time for EPs to continue submit applications. CMS made several concessions for the 2015 hardship exception application process, including an expedited approval process, as well as a shortened form that requires no supporting documentation and may be submitted on behalf of all of the EPs in a group.
