Meaningful Use Incentive Payments

Most providers are eligible to receive $44,000 to $63,750 in incentive payments for implementing EHR and achieving MU. Read more about incentive payments.

To receive Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments, providers must use EHR technology that is certified by the ONC. Visit the Certified EHR Technology page for details.  There are large and small vendors; some EHRs are even free. Finding a certified EHR may seem daunting because there are so many choices, but you should be able to find one to suit your needs. Contact CHITREC for assistance.

Program participants have to decide whether to participate in the Medicaid or Medicare incentive program. Learn more about the programs and get guidance on how to choose.

Achieving Meaningful Use of an EHR is a process that requires commitment from the entire practice. There are complicated rules and processes you must navigate to reach Meaningful Use. Although not easy, achieving MU is very doable and will ultimately result in improved health care for patients and more efficient workflows for practices. To help make reaching MU easier, consider working with the CHITREC, your EHR and MU experts.
