Welcome to the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program Sunset Informational Page
About This Site
As the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program comes to a close in 2021, this page provides information about changes to your final Meaningful Use (MU) attestation and key dates to remember in 2021.
Changes to MU/PI Attestation
Due to a shortened timeframe for accepting attestations for Program Year (PY) 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) changed Objective 1 - Protect Patient Electronic Health Information - to allow an EP to submit an attestation prior to conducting their annual security risk assessment (SRA). To qualify for an incentive payment, an EP must still conduct an SRA during calendar year 2021 and provide the required documentation, even if it is completed after the EP attests to the state. An EP who has not completed a SRA by the time they attest will be required to attest that they will complete one by December 31, 2021, and are required to update their attestation with the SRA supporting documentation by January 31, 2022.
If you choose to attest prior to conducting a security risk assessment:
You will be required to confirm that you will complete the SRA by December 31, 2021.
Your payment will be held until you have updated your attestation with the SRA completion date and uploaded acceptable supporting documentation.
To receive your 2021 payment, you can return to the EHR Incentive/PI Program portal (MI360) and update and resubmit the attestation at any time after conducting the SRA, prior to the January 31, 2022, SRA submission deadline.
The MI360 Enrollment Home page will contain the instructions for updating and resubmitting your attestation with the required SRA documentation.
