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 rule consolidates Meaningful Use measures and outlines reporting requirements for Program Year 2017.

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 MHD.EHRincentives@dss.mo.gov.

Important Dates

Program Year 2017 – Start Delayed to February 2018

Missouri’s State Level Registry (SLR) will open for Program Year 2017 for both Eligible Professionals and Eligible Hospitals beginning February 26, 2018 and will remain open through June 29, 2018.

This delay will allow incorporation of Clinical Quality Measures exclusions and/or exceptions and text changes released in a CMS tool in late 2017.

All participants must attest to Meaningful Use, either Modified Stage 2 or Stage 3 – no attestations will be accepted for AIU (Adopt, Implement or Upgrade).

Eligible Professionals that previously attested and received payment for at least one program year prior to and including 2016 can continue to participate through 2021 or until reaching a full complement of six payments.

Eligible Hospitals that attested and received payment for Program Year 2016 can continue to participate through 2021 or until reaching a full complement of three payments.

If you have questions about whether you qualify for the program or are eligible for additional payments, please contact the SLR help desk at 877-470-1307.
