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.


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 and Medicare EHR Incentive Programs to the Promoting Interoperability Programs. 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.

Payment Year 2017 Attestations

NYS has not yet begun accepting 2017 attestations via the MEIPASS system. Once the MEIPASS system is available for 2017 attestations, announcements will be posted here and sent out via the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program LISTSERV. Enrolling in the LISTSERV will ensure you receive notifications on any program changes, important deadlines, and attestation reminders.
