This is the last year that providers can begin participation in the EHR Incentive Program. Providers in their first year of participation can attest to adopting, implementing or upgrading (AIU) to certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT), or to meaningful use. Subsequent year participation requires attesting to meaningful use which means providers are meaningfully using CEHRT and achieving specified objectives and measures. For an overview of program requirements including payment amounts and how to get started, refer to Program Participation Overview 2016 [PDF 263 KB].
Providers can submit AIU applications now but Meaningful Use (MU) applications must wait until the system changes necessary to accommodate the Modified Stage 2 requirements have been completed. It is anticipated that the system will be available early July 2016 for MU applications.
