The EHR Incentives Section of the MO HealthNet Division website has been updated to provide Medicaid providers and other stakeholders with the latest information and resources for the Medicaid EHR incentive program in Missouri.
The CMS final rule for 2015 – 2017 Modifications and Stage 3 Meaningful Use was released in October 2015 and became effective in December 2015.  This new rule consolidates Meaningful Use measures and outlines reporting requirements for Program Years 2015 – 2017, creating a transition to Stage 3 which starts in Program Year 2018.
As a reminder, the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is in effect until 2021.

Please check out the resources on this site.  If you have questions, call our State Level Registry Help Desk at 877-470-1307 or email us at [email protected].

Important Dates

Missouri’s State Level Registry (SLR) will open for Program Year 2015 for Eligible Hospitals starting September 1, 2016 and remain open through November 30, 2016

In addition, the SLR will open for Program Year 2016 attestations for Eligible Professionals (EPs) starting September 1, 2016 and remain open through March 31, 2017. However, at this time the SLR will only accept applications for EPs attesting to either AIU (Adopt, Implement or Upgrade) or their first year of Meaningful Use (MU) in Program Year 2016.

CMS has issued a proposed rule that would change the EHR reporting period to 90 days for PY 2016 for all EPs returning to attest to MU for at least their second time (years 3 – 6).  We will announce the date that the SLR will accept applications for EPs returning to attest to MU, after we know the outcome of the proposed rule.
