Now that you know some of the basics about the EHR Incentive Program, let’s take a look at the registration process.
If you fall into one of the eligible professional categories and have decided to participate in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, the next step will be registering for the program. You can register here. Please note, registering does not mean that you have to participate. By registering, you can see if you are hospital-based or if there are other issues that could interfere with or delay your participation. Click here to download a Registration User Guide.
If you fall into one of the qualifying eligible professional categories and have checked to make sure your state is currently participating in the Medicaid program, the next step is getting registered. Click here to register with CMS online. As with the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, registering does not mean you have to participate. You may cancel your registration at any time.
After registration, CMS will send your information to your individual state. 24 hours after successfully registering, you will need to log into your state program’s website to verify your registration and provide additional eligibility information. Click here to download a Registration User Guide that will give you step-by-step directions on how to register online.
