Meaningful Use Attestation Portal is Now Open for Eligible Professionals (EPs) 

If you are participating in the Texas Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program and have already successfully attested to first year requirements (Adopt, Implement or Upgrade), you may begin attesting to Stage 1 Meaningful Use incentives. As a reminder, eligible professionals (EPs) must attest to patient volume, eligibility and other program requirements for each year of participation. Starting with the second year of participation, EPs must annually attest to meeting meaningful use requirements.

To attest to meeting Stage 1 Meaningful Use requirements and receive a payment for Program Year 2, go to www.tmhp.com, log into your account, scroll to “Manage Provider Account” and click on the “Texas Medicaid EHR Incentive Program” link.
