Critical Access Hospital Incentive Payments

CMS has issued a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Tip Sheet to assist CAH’s in evaluating eligibility under the Medicare EHR Incentive Payment program.  Though, CAH’s are now eligible for Medicaid EHR Incentive Payments, this eligibility is similar to all other acute care hospitals.  CAH’s are not entitled to a different calculation formula for Medicaid EHR Incentive Payments.
