EHR Incentive Payment Audits
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009 authorized the implementation of the Texas Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. The Medicaid/CHIP Division of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) began making incentive payments to eligible providers and eligible hospitals in 2011 for the adoption, implementation, upgrade, and meaningful use of certified electronic health record technology.
The HITECH Act requires states to conduct audits of payments to providers and hospitals participating in the incentive program. HHSC has contracted with the CPA firm of Davila, Buschhorn & Associates, P.C. to conduct audits of incentive payments on behalf of the State.
Representatives of Davila, Buschhorn & Associates, P.C. will be contacting providers who have been selected for audit. If you receive a notice of audit, please respond within ten (10) days with all requested information. The information you provide will be used for the sole purpose of the Texas Medicaid EHR Incentive Program audits.
