Report Fraud

The MIPS/ QPP / APM requirements are very similar to the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program's requirements. Providers participating in MIPS/ QPP/ APM, can likely meet meaningful use in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program to receive an additional $8500 or $5667 per year per provider! (lesser amount is for pediatricians with a lower % of patients enrolled in Medicaid).

There are only five more payment years left in the Medicaid program. Don't miss applying to Stage 2 for Program Year 2017 (last year for stage 2). Begin an attestation here for Program Year 2017 now. See user guide for more information.

Surrogates (organizations, practices, admins, etc.) can attest on behalf of their providers by registering at CMS. Incentives can be assigned to the provider or an entity that they have a contractual arrangement allowing the employer or entity to bill and receive payment for the EP's covered professional services.

As a reminder, Medicare providers can continue to demonstrate meaningful use in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program to avoid a payment adjustment from CMS.

The Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program provides incentive payments to eligible professionals (EP) and eligible hospitals (EH) who meaningfully use certified EHR technology. These incentive programs are designed to support providers in this period of Health IT transition and instill the use of EHRs in meaningful ways to help our nation to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient health care.
