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 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.

Attestation Deadline Extension (ADE) Request Form

The Attestation Deadline Extension (ADE) Request Form is used to request an attestation deadline extension by providing evidence that extenuating circumstances beyond the provider’s control prevented the provider from attesting in MEIPASS by the attestation deadline.

The ADE Request Form can be found on our website here: 1) Select Document Repository 2) Expand NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program 3) Expand General Program Information 4) Select Attestation Deadline Extension (ADE) Form (XLS).

The ADE Request Form must be completed in its entirety and submitted to attestation@health.ny.gov by October 31, 2018 to be formally considered for an extension for Payment Year 2017 by the NY EHR Incentive Program.
