Certified EHR Technology: Eligible Professionals

The Medicaid EHR Incentive Program requires the use of certified EHR technology. Standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria for EHR technology have been adopted by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.  EHR technology must be certified by an ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB) in order to qualify for the incentive payments. The Certified Health IT Product List is available here.

In 2017, all providers must attest to objectives and measures using the 2014 Edition Certified EHR technology (CEHRT). If it is available, providers may also attest using the 2015 Edition CEHRT, or a combination of the two.

Beginning with Program Year 2018, all providers must attest using the 2015 Edition CEHRT.
