CMS just posted an interim final rule with comment period that further delays the effective date of the cardiac EPMs from March 21, 2017 until May 20, 2017. The rule also delays the beginning of Performance Year 1, from July 1, 2017 to October 1, 2017.  In addition, there is reason to believe the beginning of Performance Year 1 will eventually be delayed until January 1, 2018...or beyond.  MedAxiom will keep you posted on further developments.
