Year 2015: As of December 15, 2015, the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program will only accept attestations coming into the program under adopt, implement or upgrade (AIU). The program will not be able to accept any attestations that use the 2015-2017 modifications for meaningful use (found in the CMS Final Rule). OHA anticipates opening to accept such attestations for both Eligible Professionals and Eligible Hospitals in late Spring 2016.
Year 2016 Program year 2016 is the last year to begin the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program (coming in under AIU or MU Payment Year 1). Eligible professionals can receive an incentive payment for adopting, implementing or upgrading, certified EHR technology in their first year of participation.
OAR Changes: Based on the CMS Final Rule, 2015-2017 Modifications for Meaningful Use, the Office of Health IT will be making (mostly minor) updates to OARs:
410-165-0000: Basis and Purpose
410-165-0080: Meaningful Use
