As of Program Year 2018, Wisconsin does not have any hospitals eligible to receive Medicaid incentive payments for adopting, implementing, upgrading, or demonstrating Meaningful Use of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology (CEHRT). The information on this webpage reflects the requirements from past program years.
Eligible Hospitals are required to initially register at the national level through the CMS Registration and Attestation system prior to completing a Wisconsin Medicaid EHR Incentive Program application.
Step 1: Register at the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System.
Eligible Hospitals will need to have the following required information to complete registration:
- Have a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number.
- Have a National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) web user account ID and password.
- Have an EHR Certification Number (optional).
Once Eligible Hospitals have the required information listed above, they can successfully register at the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System. This step must only be completed once, but Eligible Hospitals may choose to update this information prior to completing any subsequent Wisconsin Medicaid EHR Incentive applications.
Step 2: Complete the Wisconsin Medicaid EHR Incentive application.
The application can be accessed through the ForwardHealth Provider Portal. For more information on the application processes, including important preparation steps, refer to the step-by-step user guide: Wisconsin Medicaid EHR Incentive Program User Guide for Eligible Hospitals.
