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.
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 during the third 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.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Changes to Meaningful Use in 2015 through 2017
On 10/16/2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a final rule Stage 3 and Modifications to Meaningful Use in 2015 Through 2017. This rule sets new criteria for eligible professionals and eligible hospitals participating in the EHR Incentive Programs.
NY Medicaid's website and MEIPASS do not currently reflect these policy changes. More details about the changes to meaningful use for 2015 and beyond will be posted in the near future. Announcements will be made via LISTSERV® and the program website when providers may attest to the modified requirements for payment year 2015.
