EPs must select the Medicare or Medicaid incentive program (a provider may switch from one to the other once during the incentive program prior to 2015). If Medicaid is selected, the provider must choose only one state (EPs may switch states annually). Providers must revisit the CMS registration site to make any changes to their information and/or choices, such as changing the program from which they want to receive their incentive payment, demographics, or payee information. After the initial registration, the EP does not need to return to the CMS registration site before seeking annual payments unless information needs to be updated. EHs seeking payment from both Medicare and Medicaid will be required to visit the CMS site annually to attest to meaningful use before returning to the Utah system to attest for the Utah Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
