The deadline for providers to apply for Medi-Cal electronic health records (EHR) incentive payments for the 2013 program year has been extended by one month to April 30, 2014. After that date, the State Level Registry (SLR) will no longer accept 2013 applications.
For the 2014 program year, providers who are attesting to adopting, implementing or upgrading certified EHRs can currently apply to the SLR for 2014 program year incentive payments. However, the SLR is currently unable to accept applications from providers attesting to meaningful use for 2014. The SLR will not begin accepting 2014 meaningful use attestations until June.
For more information and updates, visit the SLR website at www.medi-cal.ehr.ca.gov.
