New York Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program

Through the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals (EHs) in New York who adopt, implement, or upgrade certified EHR technology (CEHRT), and subsequently become meaningful users of CEHRT, can qualify for financial incentives.

CMS is dedicated to improving interoperability and patients´ access to health information. On April 24, 2018, to better reflect this focus, CMS announced the renaming of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program to the Promoting Interoperability Program. It is important to note that the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is a part of the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program, but will continue to operate under the current name – NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.

Payment Year 2019 Pre–Validations

Individual and group eligible professionals (EPs) who have already determined their Medicaid Patient Volume may utilize the Pre–Validation services offered by the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. Pre–Validation enables EPs to submit their data for preliminary review before attesting.

Pre–Validation before submitting the completed attestation may subsequently reduce the time of state review.

NOTE: NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Support cannot review data until 90 days have passed from the end date of the 90–day Medicaid Patient Volume (MPV) Reporting Period. This period is required to allow Medicaid claims to be processed and finalized. Therefore, providers initiating Pre–Validation with an MPV Reporting Period that ended within the last 90 days will receive notice from the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Support about the inability to review the data.

We recommend selecting an MPV Reporting Period using the prior calendar year method, which prevents the possibility of timing out when using the 12 months before the attestation submission method.

Group EPs – Pre–Validation

The deadline to submit Pre–Validations for PY2019 is January 20, 2020

We continue to welcome your feedback about the program. Over the past year, significant changes have been made due to the suggestions received from the provider community. These include: electronic signatures in MEIPASS, shorter response deadlines for attestation remediation, and additional guidance about security risk assessment and post–payment audit.
