Deadline for Texas Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program

May 15, 2017

The Texas Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program is extending the deadline to attest to receive incentives for Program Year (PY) 2016. The new deadline is May 15, 2017. Attestation is considered complete after an eligible professional (EP) or eligible hospital (EH) confirms and submits an attestation in the Program portal and reaches a "payment pending" or "in review" status.

PY 2016 attestations must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Monday, May 15, 2017.  Appeals will not be considered based on missed program deadlines.

Please note that PY 2016 is the final year in which EPs and EHs can begin to participate in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.  If you have never participated in the program and you do not participate and receive an incentive payment for PY 2016, you will no longer have the option to participate in Program Year 2017 or later years.
