Eligible Professionals are required to initially register on the national level through the CMS Registration and Attestation System prior to completing a Wisconsin Medicaid EHR Incentive Program application.
For an overview of the registration and application process for the Wisconsin Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, please refer to the Eligible Professional Application Process Guide.

Eligible Professionals will need to have the following required information in order to complete registration:
