Providers can now attest through MEIPASS, the New York State Department of Health attestation portal, for the 2017 performance year of the Meaningful Use Program (or NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program).
To successfully attest, eligible providers (EPs) must submit performance year 2017 data and electronically sign attestations. As a reminder, Meaningful Use Workbooks are no longer required for 2017 attestations.
Providers have until October 15, 2018 to complete and submit the attestation. Attestations for 2017 cannot be completed until payment for 2016 is received.
Prior to attesting for Meaningful Use, EPs must complete the following steps:
Revalidate Fee-for-Service enrollment
Complete registration for ETIN and ePACES
For groups: ensure providers are linked to group accounts
Confirm registration for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program on CMS’ website
Confirm that all registrations with CMS are with a current and actively used email address
Validate Medicaid Patient Volume
To prepare for attestation, visit the NYC REACH resource library at www.nycreach.org and view the resources in the Meaningful Use Pre-Attestation folder.
