PY 2018 Updates
What You Need to Know for Program Year 2018 (PY2018)
MEDICAID EPs & HOSPITALS
EPs, EHs, and CAHs that directly participate in the Indiana Medicaid PI Program will continue to attest to the objective/measure requirements as finalized in the Modified Stage 2 final rule:
- PI Reporting Period: The PI reporting period must be completed within January 1-December 31 of calendar year 2018. All participants will attest to a continuous 90-day reporting period within the calendar year.
- CQM Reporting Period: The clinical quality measures (CQMs) reporting period is a continuous 90-day reporting period within the calendar year for EPs or hospitals attesting to their first year of MU in 2018. For all returning participating EPs/EHs/CAHs, the CQM reporting period is the full calendar year.
- Objectives and Measures: All participants are required to use 2014 Edition certified EHR technology (CEHRT)*. If available, providers may also attest using EHR technology certified to the 2015 Edition, or a combination of the two editions. All providers are required to attest to a single set of objectives and measures, which replaces the core/menu structure from previous program years.
*In 2018, participants may potentially attest to Stage 3 requirements if they use EHR technology certified to 2015 Edition standards, or a combination of EHR technology certified to 2015 Edition and 2014 Edition (if the combination of certified technologies would not prohibit them from meeting Stage 3 requirements). In 2019, all providers will be required to participate in Stage 3 through the use of 2015 Edition CEHRT.
