South Carolina Medicaid EHR Incentive Program
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has implemented, through provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), incentive payments to eligible professionals (EP) and eligible hospitals (EH) participating in Medicare and Medicaid programs that are meaningful users of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology. The incentive payments are not a reimbursement, but are intended to encourage EPs and EHs to adopt, implement, or upgrade (AIU) to certified EHR technology and use it in a meaningful manner.
Eligible providers who wish to participate in either the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Program must first register with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). To learn more about the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, visit the CMS website.
