  9. Some providers will automatically be granted a hardship exception. CMS will use Medicare data on these providers to determine their hardship exception. The following providers do not need to submit a hardship application: New providers to the profession in their first year  Eligible professionals who are hospital-based: a provider is considered  hospital-based if he or she provides more than 90% of their covered professional services in either an inpatient (Place of Service 21) or emergency department (Place of Service 23) of a hospital Eligible professionals in which 90% of their claims include Place of Service 21,  Place of Service 23 and certain observation services using Place of Service 22. Eligible professionals with certain PECOS specialties (05-Anesthesiology, 22-  Pathology, 30-Diagnostic Radiology, 36-Nuclear Medicine, 94-Interventional Radiology) 6 months prior to the first day of the payment adjustments. Eligible professionals should verify that their PECOS specialty is up to date. 9

  10. 2 In the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), Congress  mandated that payment adjustments should be applied to Medicare eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAH) that are not meaningful users of Certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) Technology under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. If a provider is eligible to participate in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program,  they must demonstrate meaningful use in either the Medicare EHR Incentive Program or in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, to avoid a payment adjustment. Medicaid providers who are only eligible to participate in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program are not subject to these payment adjustments. Medicare eligible professionals will receive payment adjustments starting on  January 1, 2015. 10
