Providers can now apply for the Meaningful Use incentive payments. NYC REACH has step-by-step guides to assist providers in understanding the registration and attestation processes for Medicare and Medicaid Meaningful Use in our members-only online resource library.
The 2009 the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (also known as the "Stimulus Bill") authorizes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to offer a financial incentive to physician and hospital providers who demonstrate the "Meaningful Use" of an EHR.
The core mission of NYC REACH is to help New York City providers achieve Meaningful Use. This section describes the incentives available, who is eligible, and what qualified providers must do to receive the incentive payments.
