New York Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program

Through the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals (EHs) in New York who adopt, implement, or upgrade certified EHR technology (CEHRT), and subsequently become meaningful users of CEHRT, can qualify for financial incentives.

Announcements

CMS is dedicated to improving interoperability and patients´ access to health information. On April 24, 2018, to better reflect this focus, CMS announced the renaming of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program to the Promoting Interoperability Program. It is important to note that the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is a part of the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program, but will continue to operate under the current name – NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.

2018 Attestations

MEIPASS will begin accepting attestations for 2018 Meaningful Use on July 1, 2019. The deadline to attest for Payment Year 2018 is September 30, 2019.

Providers who used an impacted Greenway Health LLC certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) product are advised not to attest to Payment Year 2018 with the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program at this time. Greenway Health LLC is continuing to fix issues found with certain EHR products that are calculating Promoting Interoperability (Meaningful Use) measures incorrectly. The NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program will be providing attestation deadline accommodations to providers using Greenway products impacted by this issue who submitted a Greenway Health LLC Identification Form. To find out more information or if your CEHRT was impacted by this issue, please visit our page dedicated to the Greenway Health LLC

Feedback

We continue to welcome your feedback about the program. Over the past year, significant changes have been made due to the suggestions received from the provider community. These include: electronic signatures in MEIPASS, shorter response deadlines for attestation remediation, and additional guidance about security risk assessment and post–payment audit.
