Registering for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is a two-step process:

EHs must first register with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Registration and Attestation System (RAS).To register with the CMS RAS, all hospitals must be enrolled in the CMS Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS). The CMS RAS is available at: CMS Registration and Attestation System (RAS)CMS has published a “Registration User Guide for Eligible Hospitals” that has step-by-step instructions for registering with the CMS RAS.

Once registered in the CMS RAS, EHs must complete their registration with the state of Michigan, in an EHR registration module within the Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System (CHAMPS).Once EHs have completed their registration at the federal level, they will receive a letter inviting them to complete state-level registration in an EHR module within the Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System (CHAMPS).
