Through the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, eligible hospitals (EH) and eligible professionals (EP) in New York who adopt, implement, or upgrade certified EHR technology, and subsequently become meaningful users of the EHR technology, can qualify for financial incentives.
In July, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed to reduce the 2016 EHR reporting period for all providers to a continuous 90-day period. Click here to review the fact sheet from CMS. Announcements will be made when the ruling has been finalized and if there are additional policy changes to the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
NY Medicaid will host a live webinar on Tuesday, August 23 at 2:00pm to discuss the status of the EHR Incentive Program. The presentation will include a preview of the new attestation portal, and attendees will have the opportunity to address staff members during a question and answer (Q&A) session.Click here to register for the event
The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) has launched a new Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL). The new site is available at http://chpl.healthit.gov/. All currently certified 2014 Edition products along with new 2015 Edition products will be listed on the new CHPL site.
NY Medicaid's attestation system (MEIPASS) WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE starting July 1, 2016. The system will be undergoing important maintenance for Meaningful Use attestations for 2015 and beyond. Users will not be able to access MEIPASS during this maintenance period.
It is anticipated that MEIPASS will reopen in early fourth quarter of calendar year 2016. Announcements will be made via LISTSERV and the program website.
Program support will continue to be available by phone at 877-646-5410 Option 2 and by email at email@example.com.
The deadline for 2015 Adopt, Implement, or Upgrade (AIU) attestations was March 31, 2016. Providers with extenuating circumstances beyond their control that prevented them from attesting by the deadline may submit an Attestation Deadline Extension (ADE) Request Form. Extension requests for 2015 AIU attestations must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 30, 2016.
