- Through the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, Eligible Hospitals (EH) and Eligible Professionals (EP) who adopt, implement, or upgrade to certified EHR technology, and subsequently become meaningful users of EHR technology, can qualify for multi-year financial incentives. Participation is optional and is limited to Physicians, Dentists, Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse Midwives, certain Physician Assistants, Acute Care Hospitals, and Children’s Hospitals.. Practitioners may not simultaneously participate in this program and the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, and other eligibility criteria apply. If a provider is not receiving incentive payment under this program, it does not imply that the provider is not meaningfully using EHR technology.
- The data does not include tax identification information protected per the NYS Personal Privacy Protection Law, payments made to New York State providers under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program or pending or rejected applications for incentive payments.
