August 1, 2012 – MHCP Provider Update MHP-12-09
Effective August 1, 2012, Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) requires hospitals and clinic providers to review their professional affiliations with individual providers and report any changes to the MHCP Provider Enrollment unit. This is in preparation for the Minnesota Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program (MEIP). MHCP requests that all provider groups review and update their provider affiliations by October 15, 2012.
MEIP Group Affiliations
As part of the MEIP program, all participating providers will be required to attest and meet a minimum Medicaid Patient Volume (MPV) for the reporting period. Eligible Professionals (EPs) affiliated with a clinic or group practice can choose to attest their MPV as a group, as long as the affiliations are correct and current in the DHS provider enrollment system. If you choose the group option, count all encounters associated with the practice in the group’s MPV calculation. This includes encounters by all affiliated providers, even those that are not EPs.
The following Provider Types are Eligible Professionals (EPs) for the MEIP program:
MHCP suggests that individual providers be aware of all of their provider group affiliations and understand whether EPs in those groups are planning to use the group MPV option. MHCP will provide more instructions on submitting MPV information in future communications about MEIP implementation.
Follow the instructions below to review the affiliations with your provider record:
You must report changes in professional affiliations to Provider Enrollment as they occur. Follow the instructions in the table below to report changes in professional affiliations.
