If a State has a team of staff members who will be administering the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program from 2011-2021 (answering provider questions, engaging in reporting and analysis, assisting providers with eligibility and verifying provider eligibility, appeals, etc.), would there be 90% Federal Financial Participation for this team on an ongoing basis once approval is received from CMS on State Medicaid Health Information Technology Plan and the Health Information Technology Implementation Advance Planning Document?

Yes. However, if state staff members are not working full-time on the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, their salaries need to be cost-allocated appropriately. For more information about the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, please visit FAQ10534
