New Form Required for All Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Participants

Starting April 1, all participants of the Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentive program for program year 2017 or later must complete a Third Party Attestation Authorization Form indicating whether you intend to use a third party to complete your meaningful use attestation.

You can complete the form on a computer using a digital signature and upload it to the Texas Medicaid EHR Incentive Program portal. Alternatively, you may print it, sign in ink, and scan it as an electronic file for upload. Participants will be prompted during the attestation process to upload the form through the secure upload function in the portal. You must complete and submit the form before receiving an incentive payment.

To find out more about the Medicaid EHR incentive program and attestation requirements, see the Texas Medicaid website.

If you have questions about the meaningful use program, contact TMA's Health Information Technology Department by email or call (800) 880-5720.
