This site provides an online community and repository for State Medicaid agencies to communicate and collaborate in the successful implementation of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
The Medicaid EHR Team (MeT) has developed a new tool to support State and Territory Medicaid EHR Incentive programs in understanding the impact that the Medicare Quality Payment Program (QPP) has on their programs.
The Medicare QPP Impacts Tool provides a summary of requirements from the MACRA Final Rule that have an impact or potential impact on the Medicaid EHR Incentive program and identifies if state action is required or suggested within key components of the Program. The tool also includes a more in-depth analysis of the impacts specific to each requirement and contains suggestions for states and territories to consider when addressing the requirements. Included in the analysis is a brief description of the requirement and a link to the section of the MACRA Final Rule where the requirement can be found.
CMS is requesting that all States and Territories submit for approval a separate SMHP addendum by February 10, 2017 to the HITECH Mailbox at MedicaidHITECH@cms.hhs.gov. The SMHP addendum should outline how states are addressing the changes required by the 2015-17 Modification rule, the OPPS rule and the rule creating the Medicare Quality Payment Program. The brief addendum would only cover those anticipated program, system, policy and preliminary audit changes related to these rules. To support states in developing the SMHP addendum, there is a new resource available called the 2017 SMHP Addendum Checklist. It provides a general overview of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program related requirements and provides links to pertinent sections of the Federal Register where additional details about the requirements can be researched.
Since the Stage 2 Final Rule was released there have been a number of changes to
the meaningful use (MU) objectives and measures. To support state EHR incentive
programs and their stakeholders in understanding these changes a new MU stage comparison
tool has been developed. The tool highlights how the MU objectives have evolved
from stage 2 to modified stage 2 to stage 3. In addition to describing the MU requirement
changes, a timeline is presented that includes key dates and deadlines associated
with the MU stages and associated program years.
