CMS to Hold National Provider Call on EHR Incentive Programs

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is holding a National Provider Call on March 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m. (PT) for eligible professionals (EPs) to discuss program basics for the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs. The call will focus on EP participation in the EHR Incentive Programs and help professionals learn if they are eligible. As of Feb. 29, more than $3.8 billion in Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive payments have been distributed, and more than 211,000 EPs, eligible hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals are actively registered. This is the last year EPs can participate in the CMS EHR Incentive Program and still receive the maximum incentive payment. More information on eligibility requirements is available on the CMS website at
