|Marianas Eye Institute registers for CNMI EHR Incentive|
February 2013 - "The Marianas Eye Institute (MEI) became the first Eligible Provider to register for the CNMI Medicaid EHR Incentive program," said Helen Sablan. The MEI was founded in 1997 and provides both optometric and ephthalmologic eye care services. Ms. Sablan said that the claim by the MEI is under review by the CNMI Medicaid in accordance with the CNMI State Medicaid HIT Plan and the rules and regulations of the CMS EHR Incentive Program.
Ms. Sablan also said that the MEI has registered for the FY 2012 period and has been very diligent in following up on the status of EHR Incentive program. Although eligible for both the Medicare and the Medicaid EHR Incentive program, the MEI is electing to register with the Medicaid EHR program since the incentive is over 30% more than the Medicare EHR incentive.
