Monetary incentives are available to Medicaid Eligible provider organizations to participate in the Data Exchange Incentive Program. The goal of the program is to increase the quantity and quality of data available to providers through the New York State Qualified Entities (QEs).
The local QE, HEALTHeLINK, presents the DEIP Program to provider organizations interested in receiving monetary incentives to help defray the costs for connecting to the local QE.
The minimal eligibility requirements are Medicaid providers registered as active fee-for-service providers via the NYS DOH MEIPASS system and achievement of the Medicaid EHR Incentive program standards of Adopt, Implement, and Upgrade (AIU). Providers must meet the 30% patient encounter (20% for pediatricians) threshold as defined by the NYS DOH as part of the EHR Incentive Program (Meaningful Use).
There is no sign-up fee for this program. Through support from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the NYSDOH Office of Health Insurance Programs, and New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), participation is absolutely free.
