Missouri's State Level Registry (SLR) is open for Program Year 2015 attestations for Eligible Hospitals (EHs) only – the deadline has been extended to January 30, 2016.
The SLR remains open for Program Year 2016 attestations for Eligible Professionals (EPs) only through March 31, 2017. On January 4, 2017 the SLR will accept applications for returning MU participants for Program Year 2016. Applications for EPs attesting to either AIU (Adopt, Implement or Upgrade) or their first year of Meaningful Use (MU) will continue to be accepted.
CMS recently finalized a rule that changes the EHR reporting period to 90 days for Program Years 2016 and 2017 for all returning EPs and EHs that have previously demonstrated Meaningful Use in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive programs. The EHR reporting period will be any continuous 90-day period between January 1 and December 31 in Calendar Years 2016 and 2017.
Please note, Program Year 2016 is the last year that providers can begin participation in the Medicaid EHR incentives program.
