CMS to host Conference Call on EHR Incentive Program

Did you know that providers have received over $190 million in Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentive payments through May? Don’t be left behind. Learn what you need to do to be eligible for an incentive. Join CMS for a national call for eligible professionals on Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Basics.

The target audience for this call includes Doctors of Medicine or Osteopathy, Doctors of Dental Surgery or Dental Medicine, Doctors of Podiatric Medicine, Doctors of Optometry, Chiropractors, Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse Midwives, and Physician Assistants (PA) who practice at an FQHC/RHC led by a PA. (Note that Hospital-based EP’s may not participate; an EP is considered hospital-based if 90% or more of the EP's services are performed in a hospital inpatient or emergency room setting. Medicaid-eligible professionals must meet patient volume criteria, providing services to those attributable to Medicaid or, in some cases, needy individuals.)

The agenda for this call will include:

Who is eligible?
How much are the incentives and how are they calculated?
How does one get started?
What are major milestones regarding participation and payment?
How does one report on meaningful use?
Where can helpful resources be found?
A question and answer session.
