Meaningful Use (MU) Incentive Program

The government requires providers to use a Certified EHR Technology, and so they provide EHR incentives and want evidence that providers are using their EHR in a meaningful way. Only providers who qualify as eligible professionals (EP) may participate. Eligible providers (Eps) may participate in the Medicare program, which is run by CMS, or in the Medicaid program, which is run by individual states. Each provider must choose either program that is the best fit for their practice.

Providers must demonstrate meaningful use every year to receive incentive payments.

In the first year providers can receive an incentive payment for adopting, implementing, or upgrading certified EHR technology. Providers must demonstrate meaningful use in the remaining years to receive incentive payments.

 

 

Medicaid EHR Incentive Payments

In the first year you are paid for simply acquiring, implementing, or upgrading your EHR. Payments for actually meeting the MU criteria begin in the second year under the Medicaid program. You needn’t attest in consecutive years (as you do with Medicare), but you must meet the requirements for six out of the ten years of the program. If you started in 2013, you have until 2021 (eight years) to choose a system, register, and qualify for six years. If you do not begin the acquisition, implementation, or upgrade process until 2016 (the final year to begin), you will only have the following five years (2017–2021) to earn the Medicaid incentives. Since incentive payments are only made in the years that you successfully participate, your total incentive payment will go down.

 

Eligible Professional for Medicaid EHR Incentive

  • Physicians (M.D. or D.O.
  • Nurse practitioner
  • Certified nurse-midwives
  • Dentist
  • Physician assistants, who practice predominantly in a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) or Rural Health Clinic (RHC) that is led by a physician assistant

 

Patient Volume Criteria

Eligible Professionals must meet one of the following conditions throughout  all participation years:

  • Demonstrate a minimum 30% Medicaid patient volume, or
  • Be a pediatrician* and demonstrate a minimum 20% Medicaid patient volume, or
  • Practice predominantly in a Federally Qualified Health Center or Rural Health Center   and demonstrate a minimum 30% patient volume attributable to needy individuals.

 

Adjustments - Penalty

If you have not opted out of Medicare, are not participating in Medicaid MU, and do not participate in Medicare MU, you will have an adjustment to your Medicare fee schedule. If you do not participate in the Medicare incentive beginning in 2013, you will be assessed a penalty to your Medicare fee schedule beginning in 2015 that increases each year you do not participate. This adjustment is in addition to the payment adjustments for nonparticipation in other government incentive programs, such as eRx or PQRS.
