CMS EHR Incentive Program Providers May Be Subject to Audits

Providers who receive an EHR incentive payment for either the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Program potentially may be subject to an audit. Eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) should retain ALL relevant supporting documentation (in either paper or electronic format) used in the completion of the Attestation Module responses.

States and their contractors will perform audits on Medicaid providers. Please contact your State Medicaid Agency for more information about audits for Medicaid EHR Incentive Program payments.

Figliozzi and Company is the designated contractor performing audits on behalf of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and will perform audits on Medicare EPs and eligible hospitals, as well as on hospitals that are dually-eligible for both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. If you are identified for an audit you will receive a letter from Figliozzi and Company with the CMS and EHR Incentive Program logos on the letterhead.

For further information, please review EHR Incentive Programs Documentation For Audits .
