In their first payment year, Eligible Professionals (EPs) have the choice of attesting to:
- Attest to Adopt, Implement or Upgrade (AIU) EHR technology that has been certified by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), and provide the ONC-issued certification number and attach supporting documentation: EHR vendor invoice, EHR sales contract or EHR service/training contrac (visit the ONC website); OR
- Demonstrate Meaningful Use (MU) in their first and subsequent payment years. See Meaningful Use for EPs.
Payment and the MAD 220 Provider Participation Agreement
An Eligible Professional (EP) may assign payment to himself/herself or choose to assign the payment to a business, group practice or clinic in which s/he practices. Payment assignment occurs during program registration at the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System.
If an EHR payment has been assigned in a manner not currently captured in the NM Medicaid Computer Payment System, completion of a MAD 220 Provider Participation Agreement may be necessary so the state can issue the incentive payment as assigned by the EP. Use the Medicaid Enrollment Review to determine if the EP needs to complete the MAD 220 Form to enable the state to make the EHR payment as assigned. Click on MAD 220 Provider Participation Agreement to access the electronic version of the form and submit on-line.
