For Program Year 2020, all providers will have a minimum 90-day EHR (also known as Meaningful Use) and Clinical Quality Measure (CQM) reporting period. Providers are encouraged to run Meaningful Use reports periodically to determine what measures are being met and what actions may need to be undertaken to reach thresholds.


Do I still have to attest if I have received six years of incentive payments?

Providers can only receive a maximum of six incentive payments; therefore, you do not have to attest through the Florida Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program. However, providers are encouraged to determine if there are other incentive programs for which they may be eligible. Providers should also explore how their EHR investment can be used to support interoperability through participation in health information exchange initiatives and other programs supporting exchange of patient data.
