3 Agenda General Overview Requirements Payments Process to Achieve Meaningful Use

4 Key Dates of Meaningful Use January, 2009 President signs the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act January, 2010 Official Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in Federal Register (over 2,000 responses from the public received by CMS) July 13, 2010 CMS releases pre-publication Final Rule Anticipated on July 28, 2010 Official publication of the Final Rule in Federal Register Anticipated on September 25, 2010 Final Rule becomes effective (60 days after publication)

5 Purpose of Meaningful Use 1. Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities 2. Engage Patients and Families 3. Improve Care Coordination 4. Ensure adequate privacy and security protections for Personal Health Info 5. Improve Population and Public Health

6 ARRA s Text on Meaningful Use An EP and an eligible hospital shall be considered a meaningful EHR user for an EHR reporting period for a payment year if they meet the following three requirements: Utilize certified EHR technology in a meaningful manner; Utilize certified EHR technology that is connected in a manner that provides for the electronic exchange of health information to improve the quality of healthcare such as promoting care coordination; and, Submit information on clinical quality measures and other measures in a form & manner specified by Secretary of HHS

7 Critical Decision Points for CMS Where practically possible and legally permissable, CMS aligned the EHR Incentive Program across 3 programs: Medicare Fee-for-Service Medicare Advantage Medicaid Medicare payments released by CMS Medicaid payments released by States

8 Scope of Provider Impact CMS estimates 624,000 US hospitals and EPs will be impacted CBO estimates, on average: EPs: $54K to purchase/implement certified EHR technology and $10K annually to maintain it Hospitals: $5M (range of $1M-$100M) to purchase/implement, and $1M for maintenance

9 Data on Eligible Professionals CMS estimates 477,500 eligible non-hospitalbased Medicare EPs in 2011 Of these, approximately 95,500 are also eligible for Medicaid in 2011 CMS assumes these EPs will choose Medicaid because it s larger (note: no double-dipping allowed) CMS estimates 44,100 Medicaid-only EPs

10 Data on Eligible Hospitals CMS estimates 5,011 eligible hospitals: 3,620 acute-care hospitals 1,302 critical access hospitals 78 children s hospitals 11 cancer hospitals

11 Data on Medicare Advantage CMS estimates 12 MA organizations 28,000 EPs 29 hospitals

12 Payment and Benefits Impact CMS s low scenario estimates total impact of $9.7B CMS s high scenario estimates $27.4B Estimates include payments to EPs / hospitals, cost savings, and improved health outcomes

13 Financial Impact of Non-Participation CMS notes the Program is voluntary CMS notes EPs could collectively lose up to $135M for non-participation

29 Agenda General Overview Requirements Payments Process to Achieve Meaningful Use

30 Agenda General Overview Requirements Payments Process to Achieve Meaningful Use

31 Hospital Incentive Payments Single CCN remains as billing criteria no allowance made for multi-hospital systems using a single CCN Total hospital discharge calculation and total hospital days calculation necessary for the payment process will be amended before the federal FY11 payment year via Medicare s updated cost report

32 Timing of Hospital Payments Timing of payments, especially during the first payment year, may be affected by factors such as the timeline for implementing the requisite systems to calculate and disburse the payments

33 Incentive Payments for CAHs Payments via a single CMS contractor CAH must attest it is a meaningful user and submit its documentation to its FI/MAC to support costs incurred for the certified EHR system Upon review by the FI/MAC, CMS will direct release of a single payment Payments begin in May, 2011

34 Medicare Payments for EPs Medicare Program allows for up to 5 years of payments: The second year must be consecutive to the first; the third year must follow the second, and so on If an EP achieves MU in a year, but fails to do so in a subsequent year, that year still counts towards the total of 5 possible years Anticipates one lump payment within days of submission of successful attestation

35 Medicaid Payments for EPs Medicaid Program is a 6-year program: Incentive payments may, generally, be nonconsecutive
