Alternate Attestation Method
Eligible professionals who are dually eligible, i.e. bill claims to both Medicare and Medicaid, and demonstrated meaningful use during the payment year but were unable to meet the Medicaid patient volume requirements, may attest for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program via the CMS Registration and Attestation System in order to avoid the Medicare payment adjustments. Please review FAQ EP86 for more details.

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.
