Attention AL Medicaid providers:
If you are planning to attest to Medicaid Meaningful Use for 2016, there will be a new process for logging into the provider’s account. Once the State Level Registry (SLR) becomes available, instead of using a username and password you will now be required to enter the provider’s individual NPI and the a CMS Registration ID.
The CMS registration ID can be obtained by calling the CMS Help Desk (866.484.8049, option #1 or TTY 866.523.4759) or via the web https://ehrincentives.cms.gov/hitech/login.action.
REMINDER: 2016 is the LAST YEAR TO BEGIN for Medicaid Incentives!
NOTE: There is no Medicaid penalty, however if you see Medicare patients you will be subject to a Medicare penalty unless you attest to Meaningful Use!
If you have at least a 30% Medicaid patient volume (20% for Pediatricians) you may qualify to receive a Medicaid incentive amount!
Total possible incentive is up to $63,750 over 6 years. The first year you may earn up to $21,250 if you Adopt/Implement/Upgrade or attest to Meaningful Use.
