EHR Incentive Program Blog Series Part IV: Penalties

Medicare eligible professionals who do not meet the requirements for meaningful use by 2015 and in each subsequent year will be subject to payment adjustments to their Medicare reimbursements that start at 1% per year, up to a maximum 5%.

For the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, there are no penalties. Medicaid eligible professionals who are not eligible to participate in the Medicare and the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program will not be subject to payment adjustments. However, Medicaid eligible professionals who also treat Medicare patients will have a payment adjustment to Medicare reimbursements starting in 2015 if they do not successfully demonstrate meaningful use.
