June 9, 2012 — The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have recently released their April Report on “Active Registrations and Payments” for the Government’s Stimulus Incentive Program.
The report provides listings of active Medicare EHR incentive registrants and payments made to them. Chiropractors are now listed as the fourth largest group of Eligible Professionals to collect incentive checks through April 2012.
Through this latest reporting period, 1,249 chiropractors have now received Medicare EHR incentive checks totaling $16,487,824.00. Latest CMS Monthly Payments and Registrations Report.
As one of the first to achieve Government Stimulus Certification, a significant number are ACOM clients.
“Based on the latest accounts from CMS, our own internal attestation reports and follow-up information, a significant number of DCs. Practices using ACOM’s RAPID have already received their EHR incentive checks…and are on target to take further advantage of this program through 2014,” said Mark Firmin, ACOM Health General Manager.
“This is great news for ACOM Health. Our Healthcare business unit was among the first to announce Chiropractor’s eligibility for the Stimulus Incentive program and the first to guarantee that our DC clients would qualify and receive their Stimulus payments. And now, through the industry’s most comprehensive Meaningful Use guidance program, we’re helping DCs collect more incentive payments than ever before,” added Patrick McMahon, president and CEO of parent company, ACOM Solutions Inc.
With as much as $18,000 annually and up to $44,000 per DC available through 2014, the government has proven that they’re serious about making healthcare paperless.
ACOM is equally as serious about our clients receiving their part of this stimulus incentive; so much so, that we’re willing to guarantee the government pays them, or they receive a 100 percent refund of the software. Sept. 30, 2012 is the deadline to take advantage of the full $44,000 in EHR Stimulus Payments.
