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 Information on Medicare Payment Adjustments

**Prevent Medicare Payment Reductions**

Eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals (EHs), and critical access hospitals (CAHs) who are not meaningful users of certified EHR technology may be affected by the mandated Medicare EHR Incentive Program payment adjustments.  These adjustments will be applied to your Medicare reimbursement effective January 1, 2015, for EPs and October 1, 2014 for Medicare EHs.  To avoid the adjustments, providers can attest to Meaningful Use through either the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.  Please read the "Payment Adjustment Tip Sheet" and "What Providers Need to Know" document to learn more about adjustments and what you need to do.
