Eligible Professional Expansion Program (EP2): Technical Assistance (TA) Subcontractor Request for Proposal

Overview of the EP2 Program

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has contracted with New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) to assist eligible providers in New York ROS (rest of state) in the 57 counties outside of the five Boroughs of NYC achieve Meaningful Use under the Medicaid EHR Incentive program. As of 2017, all eligible providers for this program should have implemented a certified EHR System to qualify for the MU program. By adopting a certified EHR system, Medicaid providers now have the technology in place to meet advanced objectives under this program. NYeC will work with regionally-based technical assistance (TA) subcontractors to support up to 6,000 eligible professionals statewide.

To provide the best provider assistance experience and to keep providers engaged in the Medicaid Meaningful Use program, the EP2 Full-service model program has four achievable (Full Service only) milestones, as outlined below.

  • Milestone 1: Successful attestation to Meaningful Use (Including Modified Stage 2) for the provider’s first time
  • Milestone 2: Successful second or subsequent attestation to Meaningful Use Stage 2 (including Modified Stage 2 in payment year 2017 or later)
  • Milestone 3: Successful attestation to Meaningful Use Stage 3 for the provider’s first time
  • Milestone 4: Successful second or subsequent attestation to Meaningful Use Stage 3

*Note: TAs are expected to provide service for all 4 milestones and may not assign to or pay for milestones work to be self-serviced by enrolled provider practices
