Welcome to the South Carolina Medicaid State Level Repository (SLR)
The SLR is not yet accepting Program Year 2018 attestations. Please stand by for announcements.
The South Carolina Medicaid State Level Repository (SLR) is designed for eligible professionals (EP) and eligible hospitals (EH) to attest to meeting the requirements for the S.C. Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program, formerly named the “EHR Incentive Program”, and receive incentive payments by submitting an attestation via the SLR. The Program is administered by S.C.’s Medicaid agency, the South Carolina Department of Health & Human Services (SCDHHS), Division of Health Information Technology (HIT).

Incentive payments are not a reimbursement but are intended to encourage EPs and EHs to use Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) in meaningful ways. Eligibility and Meaningful Use requirements can be found here.

How to Begin an Attestation to Receive an Incentive Payment:

Step #1           Register with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to obtain your CMS Registration ID. EPs, EHs, or representatives who wish to attest on their behalf, must first register with CMS (if they have not already done so) by clicking the following link: CMS Registration System. Once registration is completed, you will receive your CMS Registration ID which you need to login to the SLR below.
Step #2           Login to the SLR here:
Please enter your NPI (EPs enter their personal NPI)
Please enter your CMS Registration ID  
Already registered with CMS? You need your CMS Registration ID to login to the SLR to begin your attestation. If you do not know your CMS Registration ID, please login to the CMS Registration System by clicking this link to retrieve it.

Upon successful registration with the CMS Registration and Attestation System, CMS will provide a unique CMS Registration ID to the provider and will transmit registration data to the S.C. Medicaid SLR. Please allow two (2) business days for the SLR to process your registration. The provider, or their authorized representative, must then use their CMS Registration ID along with their personal NPI (if they are an eligible professional) to login to the SLR. The SCDHHS Division of HIT will verify the provider’s eligibility to participate (generally within 24-48 hours) and will email confirmation of eligibility to the provider along with information about how to proceed with attestation. After the initial registration, the provider will not need to return to the CMS Registration and Attestation System unless registration information needs to be corrected or updated.

Users working on behalf of an eligible provider for registration and/or attestation must have a CMS Identity and Access Management System (I&A) Web user account (User ID/Password). In absence of a CMS I&A account, an individual may not act as a surrogate user on behalf of the provider for registration or attestation.
