The Electronic Health Records (EHR) Provider Incentive Payment (PIP) is a federal program offering financial support to assist eligible providers to adopt (acquire and install), implement (train staff, deploy tools, exchange data), or upgrade (expand functionality or interoperability) certified EHR technology.  The program goals are to improve outcomes, facilitate access, simplify care, and reduce costs of health care nationwide by:

  • Enhancing care coordination and patient safety
  • Reducing paperwork and improving efficiencies
  • Facilitating information sharing across providers, payers, and state lines
  • Enabling communication of health information to authorized users through state Health Information Exchange (HIE) and the National Health Information Network (NHIN).

Incentives will be available through both Medicaid and Medicare.  Eligible healthcare professionals will be required to choose between Medicaid and Medicare.  Those in border counties should choose the state from which they will receive the incentive payments.  Hospitals may be able to receive incentive funds from both programs.  The Bureau for Medical Services (BMS) will administer the Medicaid EHR PIP program for West Virginia.
