EPs can access the 2018 Modified Stage 2 program requirements here and the 2018 Stage 3 Program requirements here.

Eligible Professionals that participate in the MS Medicaid EHR Incentive Program (Part of the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program) may choose several options for 2018 reporting:

Modified Stage 2

  • CEHRT Level – 2014 or 2015 (or 2014/2015 Combination)
  • 10 Meaningful Use Objectives and 6 self-selected Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs)
  • 90-day EHR Meaningful Use Reporting Period from CY 2018
  • 365-day Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) Reporting Period
  • Very similar to Program Year 2017

Stage 3

  • CEHRT Level – 2015 (or 2014/2015 Combination)
  • 8 Meaningful Use Objectives and 6 self-selected Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs)
  • 90-day EHR Meaningful Use Reporting Period from CY 2018
  • 365-day Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) Reporting Period 

Many providers experienced challenges or difficulties with Meaningful Use Objectives 8 and 9 in Program Year 2017.  For Program Years 2015 and 2016 the required reporting threshold was one (1).   The reporting threshold increased to 5% for both of these objectives for Program Year 2017.
