How to Update CMS Registration and Attest with Nebraska

Please follow the steps below to update CMS registration and attest to the Nebraska Medicaid EHR Incentive Program (https://www.nebraskaehrincentives.com/Default.aspx).

  • Prior to gaining access to the Nebraska Medicaid EHR portal, your CMS Registration must be updated at the CMS Registration and Attestation website. You can update your CMS registration via the ‘Register with CMS’ link on the left side of our portal at https://www.nebraskaehrincentives.com/Default.aspx.
  • Once Nebraska Medicaid has received a notice from CMS indicating a provider has successfully updated their registration for a Medicaid incentive payment from Nebraska, providers will be sent an emailed invitation to register with Nebraska Medicaid EHR. This generally takes 24-48 hours.
  • Click on the ‘Provider Web Registration’ link on the left hand side of the screen at https://www.nebraskaehrincentives.com/Default.aspx or use the link in the email.
  • Enter the required information to locate your provider profile. This information must match the data used when you updated your CMS registration with CMS Registration & Attestation.
  • Enter a user name, password, and answer the security questions.
  • Once your account has been created, an activation email is sent to the email address registered with CMS.
  • Click on the link provided in the email to activate your account.
  • Enter the user name and password created during the Nebraska Medicaid EHR registration.
  • Complete each of the pages on the attestation.
  • When you are done, read through the Affirmation statement and if you agree, click ‘I Agree.’ This allows your attestation to be sent to Nebraska Medicaid for review.

Please note:

  • More detailed information on updating your CMS registration and attesting with Nebraska can be found in the User Manual.  The User Manual can be accessed from the left hand side of the Nebraska Medicaid EHR Incentive portal found at https://www.nebraskaehrincentives.com/Default.aspx.
  • Important:  All correspondence regarding the EHR Incentive Program will only be sent to the contact email you used at the CMS EHR Registration.  It is the provider’s responsibility to ensure that this email address remains current/updated.   To review or update the contact information go to https://ehrincentives.cms.gov/hitech/login.action and modify the registration.  Be sure to click on the submit button at the end of the registration even if no changes were made.
  • See the Meaningful Use questions page in the portal for what to attach with your attestation.
  • It is helpful to provide us with a detailed Medicaid patient encounter report for the patient volume reporting period attesting to, including date of service and date of birth of the patient. Attaching this information assists in processing the attestation more timely. Please remove non-Medicaid patients’ information.
  • Make sure your current information is listed on the attestation. It will help us process your attestation more quickly.
