Providers Paid Under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program

In compliance with the HITECH Act's requirement, CMS has posted the names, business phone numbers, and business addresses of Medicare eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) that have successfully demonstrated meaningful use and received a payment as of March 2012. Medicare EPs, eligible hospitals, and CAH's were able to verify and edit their business phone numbers and addresses during the registration process. CMS has not posted information on group practices, as incentive payments are not provided at the group practice level.
Beginning this month, CMS is posting two file formats of Medicare EHR Incentive Program payment recipients. One format is a searchable PDF, and the other is a tabular downloadable CSV file that can be opened in many common spreadsheet programs. This CSV file can also be used to sort information about recipients, for example, by medical specialty or the state in which they practice. Use the links below to access the PDF and CSV files.

Please Note:
These lists will be updated on a quarterly basis. Not all providers are eligible for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. Only those professionals, hospitals, and CAHs that are eligible based on the regulation's eligibility requirements, attested to meaningfully using an EHR, and have received a Medicare incentive payment will be displayed online. Finally, the Act does not require CMS to post the names of eligible professionals, eligible hospitals and CAHs that have received Medicaid EHR Incentive Program payments.
