Welcome to the Nevada Medicaid Incentive Payment Program for Electronic Health Records (EHR) EHRI

As of March 17, 2015 a total of 399 providers and 28 hospitals have received over $39,619,869.09 in payments from the Nevada Medicaid EHR Incentive Payment Program.

The Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) is pleased to announce the Nevada Incentive Payment Program for Electronic Records went “live” August 6, 2012.  This program is part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Electronic Health Records Incentive Program.  The funding comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) HITECH law, and provides incentive payments to eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals (EHs) and critical access hospitals (CAHs) as they adopt, implement, upgrade or demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology.

Eligible providers can register with CMS at CMS EHR Incentive Registration. Once registered with CMS, please visit the Nevada Medicaid Provider Portal to complete your Nevada EHR program registration.

Providers need to be enrolled in NV Medicaid as an eligible provider type and be a provider in good standing.  Please check your provider enrollment status with HPES by calling 1-877-638-3472 and select provider enrollment.

 

Attention Providers

Eligible professionals and hospitals could be missing out on substantial financial incentives to adopt, implement or upgrade to CMS-certified electronic health record (EHR) technologies.  If you haven’t already taken the steps to receive your EHR incentive payments, now is the time to act.  Find out if you might be eligible to participate in the EHR Incentive Program by visiting the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) website at: http://browserspring.com/widgets/cms.


Important Announcement for Eligible Professionals (EPs)

Important Announcement for Eligible Hospitals (EHs)

Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is now accepting Stage 2 Meaningful Use attestations for Eligible Hospitals. For Program Year 2014, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is allowing providers to attest to a 90 day Stage 2 Meaningful Use period. Starting Program Year 2015, providers will be required to attest to a full 365 day Stage 2 Meaningful Use period. We encourage program participants to complete their attestations as early as possible to avoid the end of year rush that can result in delays in completing the review of the enrollment and subsequent payment.

Hospitals that have attested to Medicare by December 31, 2014, will retain the option to participate in the Nevada EHR Incentive Payment Program for 2014 and can submit their attestations through January 31, 2015.
