The Medicare and Medicaid incentive programs are different. The Medicare EHR incentive program has been incorporated into the new Quality Payment Program (QPP). However, providers may be unaware that there is still a Medicaid EHR incentive program. The time period for signing up for the Medicaid EHR incentive program ended in 2016. However, incentives for that program will continue until 2020 as long as all program requirements are met.
According to the CMS website "All states and territories offer the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program voluntarily, and determine program milestones, such as attestation timelines and reporting periods."
See the References below to review more information about this program.
