Take a Look at CMS' New Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Guide for Eligible Professionals; Remember to Register Now for the EHR Incentive Programs

CMS has created a new comprehensive guide, An Introduction to the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program for Eligible Professionals, to help walk EPs through all of the phases of the Medicaid program. This guide includes chapters on:

  • An overview of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program
  • Eligibility determination
  • Registration through CMS and eligibility verification at the state level
  • Meaningful use and picking appropriate measures
  • Attestation
  • Helpful resources on the Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs


EPs can use this guide as their source for any information they need on the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. The guide can be found on the Educational Materials section of the EHR website along with several other helpful tools and resources for participants in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, including the guide,  An Introduction to the Medicare EHR Incentive Program for Eligible Professionals,  that CMS previously created.

Register Today to Receive Maximum Incentives
CMS recommends that all eligible professionals (EPs) register as early as possible for the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs.

By registering early you can verify that your information is up to date in all of the CMS systems and resolve any issues so that you can participate in the EHR Incentive Programs. If you do not resolve registration problems in time, you will not be able to attest and could potentially miss out on a payment year. Registering does not mean you are required to participate—so register today!

This is the last year for Medicare EPs to start participating in the EHR Incentive Programs in order to receive their full Medicare incentive payments. For more information on registration in the EHR Incentive Programs, visit the Registration page of the EHR website.
