Information You Need to Register
Eligible professionals who want to register for the Meaningful Use incentives offered through the ARRA will need the following information:
- National Provider Identifier (NPI).
- National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) User ID and Password.
- Payee Tax Identification Number (if you are reassigning your benefits).
- Payee National Provider Identifier (NPI) (if you are reassigning your benefits).
What else do I need to know about registration?
Professionals eligible for both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive programs must choose which incentive program they wish to participate in when they register. Before 2015, an eligible professional may switch programs only once after the first incentive payment is initiated. Most eligible professionals will maximize their incentive payments by participating in the Medicaid EHR incentive program.
