According to a CMS news update issued today, the first incentive payments for the Medicare EHR incentive program will be sent out this week. Providers who have successfully attested to meeting the meaningful use requirements and who have met other program requirements can expect to receive their incentive payments for the 2011 payment year sometime soon.
CMS also states that participants will receive their Medicare EHR incentive program payments in the same way that they receive payements for Medicare services.
