Missouri has requested funding from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to develop and implement a Health Information Exchange (HIE) Onboarding Program. The program will provide funding to cover some of the costs for healthcare service providers to participate in the health information exchange.

This funding opportunity ends September 30, 2021. For this reason, MO HealthNet and Missouri’s four Health Information Networks (HINs) are distributing information about the program while CMS makes its determination.
Please read the Missouri Health Information Exchange Onboarding Program Announcement for specific information, including which providers and hospitals qualify for the program, what services are and are not covered, and expectations of program participants.

MO HealthNet has set a goal for the program to onboard at least 38 hospitals and 1,000 providers.

Links to Missouri’s four HINs are included below; your selected HIN can also assist with specifics about the program. The HIN will ask you to complete a Letter of Intent based on this template.

If you have questions, please e-mail MHD.EHRINCENTIVES@dss.mo.gov.
