Meaningful Use/Promoting Interoperability Services
Meaningful Use and Promoting Interoperability. The “Meaningful Use” programs were originally designed to reward providers for implementing Electronic Health Record systems. One of these programs is the Physician Medicaid program. This particular program rewards qualifying physicians $21,250 for the first year and 8,500 for subsequent years up to six years ($63,750 total).
While the similar but separate Physician Medicare Program under Meaningful Use was consolidated under the MIPS program, the Physician Medicaid program under the Meaningful Use program remained. In May 2018, the “Meaningful Use” program was renamed “Promoting Interoperability”. The name has changed, but the Physician Medicaid program is still in effect, and its rules have stayed the same.
