If a hospital is eligible to participate in both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, how should they register?

If your hospital meets all of the following qualifications, dually-eligible for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs: You are a subsection(d) hospital in the 50 U.S. States or the District of Columbia, or you are a Critical Access Hospital (CAH); and You have a CMS Certification Number ending in 0001-0879 or 1300-1399; and You have 10% of your patient volume derived from Medicaid encounters. If your hospital falls into this category, you must register for "Both Medicare & Medicaid" when registering for the program. Please select your state from the drop-down menu on the registration screen. If your state's program has not yet launched at the time of your registration, your file will be placed into a pending status (which means you cannot complete the eligibility verification or get paid) until your state's program launches. For a list of expected program launch dates, please go to For more information about the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, please visit FAQ10317
