Are physicians who are employed directly by a tribally-operated facility and who meet all other eligibility requirements eligible for payments under the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program?

Physicians are one of the categories of eligible professionals under the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. If they meet the other program eligibility requirements (they can demonstrate 30% Medicaid patient volume, they've adopted, implemented, upgraded or meaningfully used certified EHR technology, they are not hospital-based, etc.) then the fact that they are employed by a tribally-operated facility is irrelevant.
