Electronic Health Record Incentives
Missouri’s Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is part of the CMS Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program. 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 program.
A summary of requirements for Program Year 2018, based on the latest CMS rules, includes links to the specifications for Meaningful Use measures, reporting periods, and other reporting requirements.
As a reminder, the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is in effect until 2021. All payments for that final year must be made by December 31, 2021 – to allow time for review and payment, the deadline for submitting applications will be set for midyear. Exact dates will be announced in late 2020.
Open dates and deadlines for all remaining program years will be posted on this site as soon as established.
Please check out the resources on this site. If you have questions, call our State Level Registry Help Desk at 877-470-1307.
Program Year 2018 to open in January 2019
Missouri’s State Level Registry (SLR) will open for Program Year 2018 for Eligible Professionals and Eligible Hospitals in early January 2019 and remain open through April 2019 – exact dates will be announced in December 2018.
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); only professionals and hospitals that have previously attested can participate.
Eligible Professionals can continue through 2021 if they have previously attested at least once in any program year prior to and including 2016. Eligible Hospitals that have attested and received payment for Program Year 2017 can continue with subsequent payments.
Eligible Professionals can receive up to 6 payments and Eligible Hospitals, up to 3 payments.
