Physicians who assign their reimbursement and billing to a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) under Method II (CAH IIs) may participate in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program as eligible professionals.
CAH II physicians can begin participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program during the 2013 calendar year, and are eligible to earn a maximum of $39,000 during the course of the program. Due to CMS system changes, CAH II physicians who participate this year will need to submit attestations in January 2014.
CAH II Resource Available
The CAH Method II Physician Participation fact sheet is available to CAH Method II physicians for more information on how to participate, including additional payment information and guidance on reassigning their billing to the CAH.
Additional resources to help CAH Method II physicians navigate the Medicare EHR Incentive Program can be found on the Educational Resources page of the EHR website.
