The Medicaid Eligible Provider Program (EP2) is up and running! The 2017 attestation reporting period for the NYS Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is opening soon and the EP2 Program's FREE support services can help you successfully report on the necessary Promoting Interoperability (formerly known as Meaningful Use) objectives to receive your 2018 incentive payment.
The EP2 Program is a New York State Department of Health (DOH) initiative offering education, assistance, and support for achieving the NYS Medicaid EHR Incentive Program milestones with your ONC-certified electronic health record (EHR).
To date, the EP2 Program has assisted over 4,000 providers prepare for and attest to the stages of Meaningful Use (now known as Promoting Interoperability) to receive payments.
At no cost to you, the EP2 team works with individual providers and practices to ensure eligibility, develop workflows, and advise on the attestation process. During this collaborative period, the EP2 team also guides providers and practices on ways to prepare for potential audits.
Eligible providers could receive up to $34,000 in incentive payments ($8,500 for each participation year) through the New York Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. There are no penalties under Medicaid for failure to participate in all years of the program. Participation years do not need to be consecutive. The last year to receive incentive payment is 2021.
