[EHR Incentive Programs] If an eligible professional (EP) does not accept assignment for Medicare Part B, is the EP eligible for an incentive payment under the Medicare Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program?

An EP that is not a Medicare participating physician or supplier, but still submits claims to Medicare for Part B physician fee schedule services on behalf of Medicare patients to whom they furnish services would be eligible for Medicare EHR incentive payments. When the EP successfully registers and demonstrates meaningful use of certified EHR technology, the calculation of the EP's incentive payment will reflect claims for all services reimbursed under the Part B physician fee schedule regardless of whether the EP accepted assignment on those claims or not.
