Can tribal clinics be treated as Federally
Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) for the Medicaid
EHR Incentive Program?
  • CMS previously issued guidance stating that
    health care facilities owned and operated by
    American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and
    tribal organizations ("tribal clinics") with
    funding authorized by the Indian
    Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act
    (Public Law 93-638, as amended) must be
    reimbursed as FQHCs in order to be considered
    FQHCs in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. CMS
    revised this policy and will allow any such
    tribal clinics to be considered as FQHCs for the
    Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, regardless of
    their reimbursement arrangements.

The Attestation Process

    Medicaid Services registration and attestation
    system registration

Meaningful Use of EHR

    technology is a major goal of this program. CMS
    has determined that MU will be rolled out in
