From the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services, here is an important announcement on electronic health records (EHR).
As of Tue Jan 31, more than $3.2 billion in Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentive payments have been made; more than 191,000 eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals are actively registered. Learn if you are eligible and, if so, what you need to do to earn an incentive. This session will inform individual practitioners about the basics of the Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. Remember: This is the last year that eligible professionals can participate in Medicare and get the maximum incentive payment.
Target Audience: Eligible Professionals (EPs), which include Doctors of Medicine or Osteopathy, Doctors of Dental Surgery or Dental Medicine, Doctors of Podiatric Medicine, Doctors of Optometry, Chiropractors, Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse Midwives, and Physician Assistants (PA) who practice at an FQHC/RHC led by a PA. (Note that hospital-based EP’s may not participate; an EP is considered hospital-based if 90% or more of the EP’s services are performed in a hospital inpatient or emergency room setting.) Medicaid eligible professionals must meet patient-volume criteria, providing services to those attributable to Medicaid or, in some cases, needy individuals.)
