Payment Matters: Registration for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs Opened January 3, 2011


Providers interested in the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program may now take the first concrete steps necessary to enter the program. Registration for the programs opened January 3, 2011, and CMS has encouraged providers to register even if they still have not created an entry in Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) or purchased an EHR system. Providers can access more detailed instructions, along with Registration User Guides specific to Eligible Hospitals and Eligible Physicians on the CMS EHR Incentive Program web page. For an article addressing the type of EHR providers must purchase, you can read our Client Alert on “Certified EHR Technology” (see article below for link).
