FAQ

For the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, how are the reporting periods for Medicaid patient volume and for demonstrating meaningful use affected if an eligible professional (EP) skips a year or takes longer than 12 months between attestations?

Regardless of when the previous incentive payment was made, the following reporting periods apply for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program: For patient volume, an eligible professional (EP) should use any continuous, representative 90-day period in the prior calendar year. For demonstrating they are a meaningful users of Electronic Health Records (EHRs), EPs should use the EHR reporting period associated with that payment year (for the first payment year that an EP is demonstrating meaningful use, the reporting period is a continuous 90-day period within the calendar year; for subsequent years the period is the full calendar year).
