  13. Payment Year • For Medicare Eligible Professionals, the first payment year begins 1/1/2011 and is based on a calendar year (hospitals are being paid using the federal fiscal year) • For Medicaid Eligible Professionals, the first payment year can begin as early as 2010 if you are in the process of implementing an EHR already
