Medicare EHR payments are comprised of two components

Initial Payment made at the time of attestation. This is only an interim payment subject to Medicare Settlement.

Final Payment made as a settlement based on a finalized (NPR) cost report.


Initial payment

Initial Payment

PPS Hospitals – Payment made by the payment contractor 4-8 weeks after attestation.

CAH – Payment made by the payment contractor 4-8 weeks after FI/MAC validation for CAH.

CAH - Although the allowable amounts are calculated by the FI/MAC, the EHR incentive payments will be made by a single payment contractor.

Payments will be made in the same manner the CAH receives their other Medicare payments (i.e., EFT or check)  

The Initial payment is based on the latest as filed cost report.

May be based on CMS 2552-96 or CMS 2552-10 cost report


Final payment

Final Payment

Final payment or settlement is based on the Medicare Cost Report that begins during the payment year and will be reconciled to the actual amounts at final settlement of that cost report.

Only CMS 2552-10 will be used for final settlement.

Due to the change in cost report facilities that are not proactive may have to pay a portion of their initial payment back.
