The Nebraska Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program is a state run program federally funded by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS).  The purpose of the program is to encourage and assist eligible providers and hospitals in using their EHRs in a meaningful way that produces better health outcomes for Nebraska’s citizens.  Eligible providers and hospitals submit attestations to the Nebraska Medicaid EHR Incentive Program and, if approved, are issued incentive payments.  The program runs from 2012 to 2021.  During this time, eligible providers can receive up to 6 payments and eligible hospitals can receive up to 3 payments. 

Have you have received all eligible payments? You can review your payment status on the Nebraska Medicaid EHR Incentive portal found at https://www.nebraskaehrincentives.com/Default.aspx.
