Welcome Illinois Dentists!
Worry Free™ Program for AIU is your hassle and worry-free way to meet all the requirements of Illinois Medicaid EHR Incentive Program for the first year of participation. Through this program, our experts are with you every step of the way in fulfilling the requirements. Worry Free™ Program for AIU is the simplest way to qualifying and receiving your incentive payment.
As a qualified provider, you can receive $21,250 in the first year and additional $42,500 for the following 5 more years. That’s total of $63,750 in 6 years. The goal of this incentive payment is to stimulate the economy and encourage (but does not mandate) you to adopt a certified Electronic Health Record System. If you don’t have a certified EHR, we can still help with a free cost option.
How Do I Qualify?
Basic eligibility for this fund is if at least 30% of your encounters were patients with Medicaid during any 90 day period in 2013 or 2014. An example is to review your patient encounters between 6/1/2013 and 8/29/2013, count the total encounters then count how many of them were Medicaid patient encounters and if the resulting percentage of Medicaid encounters were 30% or higher, you qualify.
Even if you are below 30%, we’ll double-check your qualifications and review your options for 2015 application. You can apply for the incentive funds until 2016 (for the first year).
The Medicaid EHR Incentive Fund was created as part of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (also known as “The Stimulus”) to help medical and dental providers transition to a paperless office. The investment made (via incentive dollars to dentists) will eventually save the government significant amount each year by alleviating extra costs due to the inefficiencies of the current paper based systems used today.
