3 High Level Overview (1 of 2) Does everyone move to Stage 2 in 2014? No, everyone must do TWO years of Stage 1 before they move to Stage 2 If you have not completed a second year of attesting for Stage 1, you do not need to worry about most these changes until you complete the second year of stage 2 Which Meaningful Use stage do providers need to demonstrate in 2014? If you demonstrated MU Stage 1 for the first time in 2011 or 2012, then you must demonstrate Stage 2 in 2014 If you demonstrated MU Stage 1 for the first time in 2013 (or have never demonstrated MU), then you must demonstrate Stage 1 in

4 High Level Overview (2 of 2) How long is the attestation period in 2014? All providers, regardless of their stage of MU, are only required to demonstrate MU for a three-month EHR reporting period in 2014: Medicare Providers - three-month reporting period is fixed to the quarter of calendar year for EPs Medicaid Providers - three-month reporting period is not fixed Which Certified EHR Technology Do I Need to Use in 2014? Regardless of the Meaningful Use Stage, if you are demonstrating in 2014 you must use 2014 Certified EHR Technology All 2011 certifications expire on 12/31/13

5 Triple Aim for Meeting Meaningful Use Stage 3: Improved Patient Outcomes Stage 1: Data Capture and Patient Access More Affordable Patient Care Better Health for Populations Stage 2: Information Exchange and Care Coordination Better Patient Care 5

8 2014 Reporting Changes Reporting Period Reduced to Three Months Allows providers time to adopt 2014 certified EHR technology and prepare for Stage 2 All participants will have a three-month reporting period in 2014 Stage 2 rule allows for batch reporting Starting in 2014, groups will be allowed to submit attestation information for all of their individual EPs in one file for upload to the Attestation System, rather than having each EP individually enter data 8

9 All EPs, EHs, and CAHs: Upgrade to 2014 Edition certified EHR Starting with the 2014 meaningful use reporting period all EPs, EHs, and CAHs need to upgrade to 2014 Edition EHR technology only regardless of the meaningful use stage they need to meet The 2014 Edition EHR certification criteria support both revised MU Stage 1 and new Stage 2 requirements 2011 Edition will no longer be acceptable for the purposes of meeting the Certified EHR Technology definition and from a regulatory perspective 2011 Edition certifications will expire come the 2014 MU reporting period

10 2014 has a Special MU Reporting Period Length Medicare For non-first time Medicare EPs, EHs, and CAHs One calendar quarter during the reporting year (e.g., April 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014 would be a Medicare EP s 2nd quarter and an EH/CAH s 3rd quarter) Medicaid All Medicaid EPs, EHs, and CAHs (as determined by their state) will have an any continuous 90-day or 3- month reporting period during 2014 All new EPs, EHs, and CAHs continue to have an any continuous 90-day reporting period

11 Penalties Add Up for Medicare Providers! Year erx EHR PQRS Penalty Total % No penalty No penalty 1.0% % No penalty No penalty 1.5% % No penalty No penalty 2.0% No penalty No penalty No penalty 1.0% 1.5% 2.5% 2.0% 2.0% 4.0% 3.0% 2.0% 5.0% 11

12 Medicaid Differences Medicaid EHR Incentive Program policy is different in two respects: 1. The Medicaid program does not have payment adjustments, so hardship exceptions are unnecessary 2. Medicaid providers are not required to participate in consecutive years of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program For example, if a Medicaid EP skips 2014 (which would otherwise be their Stage 1, Year 2 ) and also skips 2015 but comes back to the Medicaid program in 2016, they would be required to demonstrate Stage 1, Year 2 in 2016 as if they never left the Medicaid program for those two years

13 2014 is the Last Year Medicare EPs Can Start MU to Get Incentive Payments As stated in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, no incentives can be paid to Medicare EPs that begin MU after 2014 EPs that start MU in 2014 could still earn as much as $24,000 in incentives if they demonstrate MU from 2014 through 2016

14 2014 is the basis 2016 Medicare Payment Adjustment For EPs this potentially means a -2% reduction to the Medicare physician fee schedule (PFS) amount for covered professional services furnished by the EP during 2016 The payment adjustment calculation for EHs and CAHs is a little more complicated and different for each.

16 Medicaid Provider Eligibility Expansion Patient Encounters The definition of what constitutes a Medicaid patient encounter has changed. The rule includes encounters for anyone enrolled in a Medicaid program, including Medicaid expansion encounters (except stand-alone Title 21), and those with zero-pay claims The rule adds flexibility in the look-back period for overall patient volume 16

17 Medicaid Patient Volume Calculation Medicaid Encounters Previously under Stage 1 Rule prior to 2013 Service rendered on any one day where Medicaid paid for all or part of the service or Medicaid paid the co-pays, cost-sharing, or premiums Changed in Stage 2 Rule (applicable to all stages) Service rendered on any one day to a Medicaid-enrolled individual, regardless of payment liability Includes zero-pay claims and encounters with patients in Title 21-funded Medicaid expansions (but not separate CHIPs) Zero-pay claims include Claim denied - Medicaid beneficiary has maxed out the service limit Claim denied - service wasn t covered under the State s Medicaid program Claim paid at $0 - another payer s payment exceeded the Medicaid payment Claim denied - claim wasn t submitted timely 17

18 Medicaid Patient Volume Calculation Using Children s Health Insurance Program Encounters Stage 1 rule Only CHIP encounters for patients in Title 19 Medicaid expansion programs Stage 2 rule CHIP encounters for patients in Title 19 and Title 21 Medicaid expansion programs As before, encounters with patients in stand-alone CHIP programs cannot be included in Medicaid patient volume calculation 18

19 Medicaid Provider Eligibility Patient Volume Calculation Under Stage 1 rule prior to 2013 Medicaid patient volume for providers calculated across 90-day period in last calendar year Under Stage 2 rule (applicable to all stages) States also have option to allow providers to calculate Medicaid patient volume across 90-day period in last 12 months preceding provider s attestation Also applies to needy individual patient volume Applies to patient panel methodology, too With at least one Medicaid encounter taking place in the 24 months prior to 90- day period (expanded from 12 months prior) 19

62 Appendix

63 What is Meaningful Use? Meaningful Use is when a provider uses an Electronic Health Record (EHR) meaningfully According to CMS a provider uses their EHR meaningfully when they: Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities Engage patients and families in their healthcare Improve care coordination Improve population and public health Ensure adequate privacy and security protections for personal health information 63

64 Overall Eligibility Requirements for Professionals Incentive payments for eligible professionals are based on individual practitioners If you are part of a practice, each eligible professional may qualify for an incentive payment if each eligible professional successfully demonstrates meaningful use of certified EHR technology Hospital-based eligible professionals are not eligible for incentive payments An eligible professional is considered hospital-based if 90% or more of his or her services are performed in a hospital inpatient (Place Of Service code 21) or emergency room (Place Of Service code 23) setting. Each eligible professional is only eligible for one incentive payment per year, regardless of how many practices or locations at which he or she provide services 64

65 Meaningful Use Eligibility Medicare Eligible Professional Doctor of medicine or osteopathy Doctor of dental surgery or dental medicine Doctor of podiatry Doctor of optometry Chiropractor Cannot be hospital based (90% of services furnished inpatient or ED) Medicaid Eligible Professional Physician (MD/DO) Nurse practitioner Certified nurse-midwife Dentist Physician assistants who work at a PA-led FQHC or RHC Cannot be hospital based Must meet one of the following criteria: Have a minimum 30% Medicaid patient volume Have a minimum 20% Medicaid patient volume and is a pediatrician Practice predominantly in a FQHC or RHC and have a minimum 30% patient volume attributable to needy individuals 65 If you are eligible for both the Medicare and the Medicaid incentive programs, you can only participate in one program not both You may change incentives once over the incentive program duration If you practice in multiple locations, at least 50% of patients must be treated in locations that have certified EHRs that you use meaningfully

66 Can I Implement and Satisfy Requirements in the Same Year? (Yes, but watch dates!) 66 Medicare For the first payment year, the certified EHR reporting period is a continuous 90 day period within a calendar year In subsequent years, the EHR reporting period for eligible professionals will be the entire calendar year* * In 2014, everyone will report 90 days regardless of year Medicaid For the first participation year, eligible professionals only have to demonstrate that they have adopted, implemented or upgraded (AIU) certified EHR technology and meet the minimum volume threshold requirements for a 90 day period within the last 12 months There is no reporting period for this requirement; you simply have to have your EHR in use when you attest this fact to the state In subsequent years, the EHR reporting period for eligible professionals will be 90 days and then the entire calendar year*

67 Notable Differences Between Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Medicare Federal government will implement Medicare fee schedule reductions begin in 2015 for physicians who are not meaningful users Meaningful use (attesting) begins in year 1 Maximum incentives for Eligible Professionals (EPs) is $44,000 ($39,000 if start in 2013, and $24,000 if start in 2014) Program sunsets in 2016; fee schedule reductions begin in 2015 Payments are proportional to Medicare allowed charges (75% of total allowed charges billed up to a cap each year) Payments after April 1, 2013 are subject to 2% sequestration Medicaid Voluntary for states to implement No Medicaid fee schedule reductions Adopt/Implement/Upgrade (AIU) for year 1 Maximum incentive for Eligible Professionals (EPs) is $63,750 Program sunsets in 2021; last year a provider may initiate program is in 2016 Payments are fixed and not proportional to Medicaid billings Payments are not subject to the 2% federal sequestration 67

68 Eligible for Both Programs? If eligible for both the Medicare and the Medicaid EHR incentive programs: Select one as you cannot receive incentive payments from both programs at the same time Medicare penalties will be incurred if Medicaid EHR incentive program is selected but you have not attested for 90 days of Meaningful Use before

69 Meaningful Use Payment Medicare Adopt on or before $18, $12,000 $18, $8,000 $12,000 $15, $4,000 $8,000 $12,000 $12, $2,000 $4,000 $8,000 $8,000-1% 2016 $0 $2,000 $4,000 $4,000-2% 2017 $0 $0 $0 $0-3% Total $44,000 $44,000 $39,000 $24,000 Negative Revenue 69

70 Medicare Penalties Based on What Year? If you start the program in you must do days in days in 2013 to avoid payment adjustment in 2015! days in days by October 1, 2014 Source: Guidance/Legislation/EHRIncentivePrograms/Downloads/PaymentAdj_HardshipExcepTipSheetforEP.pdf 70

72 Medicare Incentive Payments EPs are eligible for payments: Equal to 75% of total Medicare allowable billings up to cap For total incentives over program duration of up to $44,000 For all payments made after April 1, 2013, 2% will be taken out due to federal sequestration Payments are based solely on achieving meaningful use There are no up front payments for adopting, implementing or upgrading EHRs Payments are paid over 5 years, up to 5 payments If you adopt later or achieve meaningful use later, both the number of payments and the amount per payment drops If you skip a year after you have begun the program, the payment for that year will be lost If meaningful use is not achieved one year after you begin, the payment for that year will be lost

73 Meaningful Use Payment Medicaid Calendar Year 2011 $21,250 CY 2011 CY 2012 CY 2013 CY 2014 CY 2015 CY $8,500 $21, $8,500 $8,500 $21, $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $21, $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $21, $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $21, $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $8, $8,500 $8,500 $8,500 $8, $8,500 $8,500 $8, $8,500 $8, $8,500 Total $63,750 $63,750 $63,750 $63,750 $63,750 $63,750 73

74 Medicaid Payment Year 1 AIU Providers must demonstrate that they have adopted, implemented or upgraded certified EHR Technology There is no reporting period for this requirement It simply has to be accomplished before you attest that fact to the State In the first year of AIU, you must prove: Volume (group or individual) for a 90 day period of the prior 12 months Verification/receipt of adopting, implementing, or upgrading certified EHR technology The first year a Medicaid provider demonstrates meaningful use the EHR reporting period is 90 days (starting the year after you attest to AIU)

75 Medicaid Incentive Payments Providers whose patient mix includes at least 30% Medicaid beneficiaries, either managed care, fee for service or secondary Medicaid are eligible for up to $63,750 Pediatric providers whose patient mix includes at least 20% Medicaid beneficiaries, either managed care or fee-for-service are eligible for up to $42,500, two thirds of the $63,750 (If they meet the 30% volume they are eligible for the entire $63,750) There are 2 types of payments The first payment is based on adopting, implementing or upgrading EHR (up to $21,250 for this first payment) The remaining 5 payments are based on achieving meaningful use You may receive up to 6 payments, paid over 6 years (must start by 2016) If you adopt /achieve meaningful use later, the number of payments available decreases, but not the amount per payment If you skip a year after you have begun the program, you can wait until the next year and try again If meaningful use is not achieved one year after you begin, you can wait until the next year and try again If you are a Medicare provider participating in the Medicaid incentive you must follow the Meaningful Use timeline to avoid payment penalties

76 How to Register and Attest CMS has excellent step by step instructions with screen shots on registration and attestation For detailed directions access the following link: ation.asp Prior to registering, ensure that your Eligible Professionals (EP) know the following information National Provider Identifier (NPI) National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) User ID and Password (same as PECOS log in and password) Payee Tax Identification Number (if you are reassigning your benefits) Payee National Provider Identifier (NPI)(if you are reassigning your benefits) 76
