Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Programs

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) (Pub.L. 111–5) was enacted on February 17, 2009. Title IV of Division B of ARRA amends Titles XVIII and XIX of the Social Security Act (the Act) by establishing incentive payments to eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs), and Medicare Advantage Organizations to promote the adoption and meaningful use of interoperable health information technology (HIT) and qualified electronic health records (EHRs). These incentive payments are part of a broader effort under the HITECH Act to accelerate the adoption of HIT and utilization of qualified EHRs.

Medicare Appeals – Health Care Professionals

All Medicare patients can appeal an inpatient hospital discharge decision. This includes members in our Medicare Advantage plans. This process is called a Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) review. The QIO in the state in which services are provided reviews the hospital discharge decision. The result is binding (final).

Medicare Advantage Plans: HMO vs PPO vs PFFS

What makes HMO plans unique is that you usually have to choose a primary care doctor. If you get treated by doctors, hospitals, or other providers outside of your network, you are generally not covered (unless you’re in an emergency). You may need to get a referral from your primary care doctor to see a specialist. If you don’t follow your HMO plan’s rules, you may have to pay the full cost of your service.
