Important Dates

Program Year 2018 to open January – April 2019

Missouri’s State Level Registry (SLR) will open for Program Year 2018 for Eligible Professionals and Eligible Hospitals on January 2, 2019 and remain open through April 30, 2019.

All participants must attest to Meaningful Use, either Modified Stage 2 or Stage 3 – no attestations will be accepted for AIU (Adopt, Implement or Upgrade); only professionals and hospitals that have previously attested can participate.

Eligible Professionals can continue through 2021 if they have previously attested at least once in any program year prior to and including 2016. Eligible Hospitals that have attested and received payment for Program Year 2017 can continue with subsequent payments. Eligible Professionals can receive up to 6 payments and Eligible Hospitals, up to 3 payments.

As a reminder, the last year to participate in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is 2021. All payments for that final year must be made by December 31, 2021 – to allow time for review and payment, the deadline for submitting applications will be set for midyear. Exact dates will be announced in late 2020.

Open dates and deadlines for all remaining program years will be posted on this site as soon as established.

If you have questions, call our State Level Registry Help Desk at 877-470-1307.

Missouri’s Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is part of the CMS Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program.

Welcome to the Missouri State Level Registry (SLR) — Provider Outreach Page

As the healthcare landscape continues to modernize, recent legislation was passed to encourage the adoption of Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR) technology in documenting patient care. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, beginning in 2011, offers eligible Medicaid providers financial incentives for the implementation and meaningful use of Health Information Technology (HIT) in the management of patient populations.

To streamline the process of applying for these incentives, MO HealthNet (Missouri’s Medicaid program) offers this web portal to centralize national, state and regional links and provide resources for your HIT transition, including the following:

  • A centralized “one-stop” launching pad of available tools for managing your MO HealthNet EHR Incentive information,
  • A secure portal to access the MO HealthNet State Level Registry (SLR),
  • Access to real-time feeds of current HIT news and updates from federal organizations including CMS.

Educate yourself today on the benefits of HIT and be a part of transforming the quality, efficiency and safety of healthcare delivery.
