NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program

Attestation Portal Information


To be considered for EHR incentive payments, eligible providers must attest in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Administrative Support Service (MEIPASS).

MEIPASS is currently only open for 2016 Meaningful Use (MU) for providers granted attestation deadline extensions.

To attest to 2016 MU, a provider must attest in MEIPASS and submit the Meaningful Use Workbook. Please click here for more information regarding the MU attestation process.

View interactive, on–demand video tutorials to assist with completing the meaningful use workbook.

Please submit your MEIPASS attestation prior to submitting the meaningful use workbook as the MEIPASS attestation date is used to determine if the EP has met the deadline.

Please Note: 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 on the website 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.

Preparing to Attest

EPs must have the following items in place in order to successfully attest in MEIPASS:

Fee–For–Service Enrollment EPs must be registered as Fee–For–Service Medicaid providers and enrollment must be active throughout the entire attestation, until payment has been processed. For more information visit eMedNY for more information or call eMedNY Provider Services at 1–800–343–9000.
