The Medicaid EHR incentive program, known as Meaningful Use and Promoting Interoperability, began in 2011 and ended on December 31, 2021. Physicians and other eligible clinicians who participated in the program are still subject to audits. Remember to maintain detailed records of program participation for a minimum of six years. Visit the Texas Health and Human Services Audits and Appeals page for more information.
The Medicare Promoting Interoperability program remains active and more information is available on the TMA Promoting Interoperability page.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services appears poised to extend the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) for a 10th time, which is good news for millions of Texans benefiting from continuous Medicaid coverage as a result of the PHE. Nevertheless, these patients remain at risk of losing their coverage when the PHE does end. TMA is urging physicians to prepare now for that looming coverage cliff.
